Episode #257: Esther Quansah and Becky Foinchas of The Narcotix – West African Art-Folk Band Based in Brooklyn, Debut EP ‘Mommy issues’ Out Now

The guests for this episode are Esther Quansah and Becky Foinchas of The Narcotix, a West African art-folk band based in Brooklyn. The two, both daughters of African immigrants, met in an elementary school chorus class in Woodbridge, Virginia, where their creative, musical, and personal sisterhood would start and lead all up to the release of their debut EP Mommy Issues. Soaking up their ancestral and environment influences throughout their lives, The Narcotix have such a fresh spiritual sound that is both fun and soulful. During my chat with Esther and Becky, we talk about how they met and how they are such a close duo, both personally and musically. It was a fun conversation and they are definitely a band to watch out for in the future.
