Jayson’s DJ pick of the week is Pokey LaFarge’s latest single, “Sister Andre.” This song serves as a vibrant preview of his upcoming album, Rhumba Country, slated for release on May 10th, 2024. LaFarge explains his shift to creating joyful music, “There was a time when I glorified sadness because I lost sight of who I was, but now I understand that creating and expressing joy is my gift, and gifts are meant to be shared.” 

Influenced by a diverse array of musical styles spanning mambo, tropicalia, rocksteady, and mid-century American rock-and-roll. The album showcases LaFarge’s storytelling prowess, with “Sister André” serving as a heartfelt ode to love and loneliness.

LaFarge’s distinctive voice, coupled with the vintage charm of the song, invites listeners to immerse themselves in its uplifting melody. Drawing inspiration from global artists like Jorge Ben, LaFarge aims to simplify his musical approach. Highlighting the universal appeal of country music across cultures. As he prepares to embark on a summer tour across North America and the United Kingdom, kicking off on May 3rd in Woodstock, NY, LaFarge’s Rhumba Country promises to captivate audiences with its infectious energy and timeless melodies.
