Album Notes
I am Fiidla.....and my band is called Chocolat' Wireworks.....I sing,play electric bluesy-world flavored violin,piano and several instruments on this Cd....I've recorded with Talib Quali,Mos Def,Santana,Sun Ra,and greatest influences are EWF,P-Funk,SunRa,and others....My Music Was inspired by my experiances performing,living,and loving all over the world...but primarily in the inner city of NY and in Philadelphia,Pa.My Cd showcases my ability to perform,compose,and orchestrate,and arrange...What if Duke Ellington lived in the hood?Or If Prince....played violin?...Enjoy...Fiidla...Respect to my mentor-and musical father...Sun-Ra...Thank you for taking me on your space ship!

Very well choreographed! Wishing you the very best in your continued endeavors Fiidla! I especially enjoyed Every Lonely Tear & Jam Jam. :)

Very Serious work
I enjoyed listening to the music especially red eyes, Jam Jam and the box, it is happening music for the clubs.


A great work, easy morning song to exercise to especially Youv'e Got The Best of
A great wqork and choice of music, good singing too. This album should be played worldwide espcially in the Netherlands. From what I've heard it's definitely world beat world class music. Anxiously waiting to hear you im concert...performing with Sun-Ra must've been awesome, he put me in the mind of the Anunnaqi.


Mesmerizing sounds and words
I was lost in this cd...anything I've ever felt is on this cd!!! It's like somebody put music to what I feel in my soul...It's amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am a lifetime fan of Fiidla!!! :-)

The Best !!
Good music for all age groups to enjoy and his voice is awesome, I enjoy all of the songs on the CD I love to hear Fiidla sing \"Spirit\" for me it puts me in a peaceful place. A Must get CD!


World soul with reggae and urban blends
Fiidla's music has African roots and a fusion of global inspiration ... awesome.


A musical form of Calgon,it completely took me away. It is what I consider bathtub music, it puts me in the mindset of bubbles and candlelight. I love it!


Such love and soul: violin strings that move heart strings.
Fiidla - voice, violin and composer - is stellar. From romantic, to beautiful melody worth a single, right to the spoken State of Things finale, this CD is an exceptionally creative performance from a multi-talented artist.

Get this now
If you are looking for some positive music, this CD is the spot.
He has the modern sound we all want with a beat that's fresh and NO FOUL WORDS OR CONTENT

Lisa Jackson

I love it. It is very relaxing!!! Anxiously awaiting more!!
On this CD you get the true sense of Fiidla's range and talent. He plays. He sings. He writes. Fiidla is a rare find. There is something, musically, for everyone on this CD.
