Uncut // *** “Elegant torch from West African wondergirl (…) African ryhtms clashing with the reggae sway Lauryn Hill does so well”
The Guardian // **** ” When she gets her jazz groove on in Bimpé and Be My Man, you wish the songs would never end”

Mojo //*** & Rising feature “Asa’s second LP delivers intelligent, funked-up soul-pop (…) A voice that mixes Macy Gray huskiness with Nina Simone passion”

BBC // “Imperfect but frequently beautiful, much like the world it inhabits.”

Echoes // cover story “Asa rides the wind of storm and evolves into something quite special”

Pride //*** “A cool retro feeling groove (…) We’re digging this new, uplifted style”

Yannick Noah ft. Asa - HELLO

Born in the North of France (Sedan, Ardennes) in 1960, Yannick Noah is the son of a Cameroonian soccer player, Zacharie Noah, and his French wife Marie-Claire. After a sports injury in 1963, Noah's father returned to Africa with his family. There Yannick made his debut in tennis and soon showed an amazing talent that eventually brought him to the French Tennis Federation's training center in Nice in 1971, after Black-American tennis legend Arthur Ashe discovered him while he was playing a tournament in Africa. Six years later Yannick Noah won his first victory in the Wimbledon junior category and became professional the next year.

He is best remembered for winning the men's singles title at the French Open in 1983, and as a highly-successful captain of France's Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams. Since his retirement from the game, Noah has remained in the public eye as a very popular music performer and as the co-founder, with his mother, of a charity organization for underprivileged children.
