Interview by Serge Afeli on the Les Africains D'Amerique  

En 1998, alors qu’elle n’a que 22 ans Fely Tchaco devient une sensation musicale en Afrique subsaharienne avec une chanson d’amour intitulée « mon espoir ». Installée à San Francisco aux Etats-Unis depuis l'an 2000, elle fera le bonheur des mélomanes Américains épris de musique Africaine. Aujourd’hui, elle revient avec un tout nouvel album intitulé YITA où elle parle de l’immigration clandestine des Africains vers l’Europe, de justice sociale et de de brutalité policière envers les noirs aux Etats-Unis....


This new record by Fely is heavily inspired by the trip she took in 2016 to the Syrian refugee camps...

It is no coincidence that this CD will be released on International Women's Day: singer and multi-talent (she is also a dancer and very strong in graphic arts) Fely Tchaco has her roots in Ivory Coast and therefore knows a thing or two about the position of the woman in today's world.

Het is geen toeval dat deze CD uitkomt op de internationale vrouwendag: zangeres en multi-talent (ze is ok danseres en heel sterk in grafische kunsten) Fely Tchaco heeft haar roots in Ivoorkust en weet dus wel een en ander te vertellen over de positie van de vrouw in de wereld van vandaag. Zelf heeft ze zich in de zeven jaar sinds we voor het eerst van haar hoorden, ontpopt tot een bijzonder sterke vrouw, die mede door de kunst(en) waarin ze actief is, niet heel erg meer gevat kan worden door de mannelijke…

Fély Tchaco : ‘’Yita’’, Un Cri Dans L’Océan 

Il est baptisé Yita et était prévu pour sortir il y a un an. Mais cet album, à cause de la pandémie de la Covid-19, a dû attendre 2021. Et c’est ce lundi 8 mars, journée internationale de la femme, que Fély Tchaco publie cette nouvelle production discographique, la 5ème de sa carrière. 

Les premières notes de la chanson sont lointaines et tristes, comme un cri dans la nuit. On se croirait en forêt profonde. Mais très vite, le mouvement des vagues vient rappeler qu’on est en plein milieu de l’océan.

From Ivory Coast to West Coast, Fely Tchaco’s Musical Vision Defies Borders

In the spring of 2016, Fely Tchaco joined guitarist Freddy Clarke’s Wobbly World band on a relief mission to Greece bringing medical aid to Syrian refugees. Born and raised in Ivory Coast, Tchaco had seen her fair share of hard times and poverty, but the trip changed her perspective on the way that tribulations are distributed around the world.
