First Listen: Abakan makes an instant classic on "The People"

(December 13, 2018) We didn’t know much about French soul singer Abakan, but we’re glad the chance finally came. Influenced by both 70s pop, soul and jazz performers, he creates a brand of music that straddles the fence of those genres in a way that would appeal equally to fans of Michael McDonald and Roy Ayers.

Abakan has released a new single that will definitely find a spot with soulheads around the world. “The People” uses liberal organ riffs and a cool rhythm section to establish a midtempo number that soars behind his falsetto lead.

We’re digging this single and we think you will too. Check out “The People” below and welcome Abakan to SoulTracks.
