Farida Amadou is a self taught bass player based in Brussels, Belgium. The electric bass is her main instrument since 2011. In 2013, she has started to play a lot of different musical genres, including blues, jazz and hip-hop. Soon Farida started to dive into improvisation music, and got rapidly identified by local musicians. After a year (2017) as bass player in belgian punk band Cocaine Piss, in 2019 Farida decided to focus on her solo improvisation practice and collaborations with musicians like Thurston Moore, Peter Brötzmann, Terrie Ex, Andy Moor, Pat Thomas, Julien Desprez among other occasional featuring such as Jerusalem in My Heart and Moor Mother.
