The Good Ones – The Farmer (ANTI- Records) 
The Good Ones - The Farmer

Release Date: Out Now

Here’s something a bit different for you, a change of pace if you will. Rwandan trio The Good Ones have just signed with ANIT- Records and have an album coming in November but ahead of that comes new single ‘The Farmer’. Opening with gentle, forlorn guitar ripples this has the feeling of a folk lament which is matched by the lyrics which translate in to English as “Stay strong enough to keep fighting, you are the saviour of us all” which, when related back to the song title, makes a huge amount of sense. The harmonies of Adrien Kazigira, Janvier Havugimana and Javan Mahoro sound as though they could have been sung back through the ages but the message is bang on for a time when the provision of food to feed a growing population is keenly becoming one of the biggest issues for humanity.
