Jain: My Musical Souvenir

I was lucky enough to find myself in Paris and Geneva recently, where I got to hear some of the latest in French music. One day while watching TV in my hotel room in Geneva, a short clip aired about a singer called Jain. The 23-year old was born in France but lived in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and the Congo while growing up. She learned different instruments and musical techniques in each location, and the influence of her worldly upbringing can be heard on her EP Hope. “Makeba” and “Come” are danceable earworms for sure, combining African beats with strummed guitars and synths to create a unique soundscape. Listen to a few tracks below, and if you like what you hear, you can read her in-depth interview with The Fader here.
