In a search of her ancestral history, Anne-Fay traveled trough the diaspora of her family to be inspired. A journey trough Aruba, Curaçao, Suriname and Ghana which both physicly as mentally took a heavy toll on the singer. As a white woman with a black mother Anne-Fay asked herself what the proportions are for her relating to society, the colonial history of The Netherlands and cultural appropriaton. The result of the journey is the album Reaspora which will come out on January 29th. On 4th of april, 2021 Anne-Fay will play the Grote Zaal.

For the album Anne-Fay worked with producers all over the world. In Ghana she worked with Kwame Yeboah (known for his work with Stevie Wonder and Pat Thomas) and in Suriname she worked with Jeremiah Jones (Ed Sheeran, Damian Marley) and Morgan Avenue (S10, Willem and Glen Faria). The singer talks about subjects which refer to her directly, too. The song ‘I Am Racist’ is about the racism that Anne-Fay discovers in herself and ‘Tighs’ is about her experience as a woman with an Afro-Surinam body on a white dancing school in The Netherlands. The singer who played support for Major Lazer and Buraka Som Systema with Cookachoo, shows with this record a new side of herself.
