Farida Amadou is a self-taught bass player based in Brussels, Belgium. Her experimental music is known for mixing crunchy bass lines with distortion, a holdover from her days with the Belgian punk band Cocaine Piss. Since 2011, she has mainly played the electric bass in a variety of musical genres such as blues, jazz, and hip-hop. Farida Amadou soon started to dive into improvised music, and was quickly noticed by local collectives and musicians. Over the years, she has recorded solo albums, collaborated with top-rate musicians such as Steve Noble and Thurston Moore, and featured with bands such as Jerusalem in My Heart and Moor Mother.
