Fehdah

Where: Shieling Stage

We are so excited to be welcoming Fehdah to the stage for her first time at Knockengorroch Festival.

Spiritual daughter of Erykah Badu and Oumou Sangare, Fehdah is a future-afro soul vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, on the frontline of an emerging Irish hiphop and electronic music scene. An eclectic songwriter who draws on her love of Wassoulou music in forging an entirely new take on electro-soul.

Following the success of her debut EP, ‘Like No Other’, premiered by Aaron Byrd on LA radio station, KCRW in 2017; Fehdah has shared the stage with Grammy nominated artists such as Nai Palm at KOKO in London, Thundercat at Vicar Street in Dublin, Hiatus Kaiyote, Taylor McFerrin, Kamaal Williams with IAMDDB, Georgia Anne Muldrow and Tank and the Bangas. She has since delved deeper in the direction of the title track of this EP, producing a pioneering sound that she describes as ‘Sahelian-Electrosoul’. Buffer Fly is Fehdah’s most recent single, being called surely the music of an Afrofuturist.

To have such an exciting and innovative musician in these hills is exciting to say the least! Don’t miss it!

Fehdah is crafting her own genre
