My name is Greg and his name is Simon. We are record producers from Montreal, Canada (the place with the maple sirup). One day Simon asked me if I wanted to go to Africa to help some friends build a recording studio. Little did we know what we were getting into...

Since then, we've decided that once a year, we would pick a country, board a plane, pack suitcases full of gear and record as many talanted artists as we could find. Follow us on our musical (and whacky) journey around the world.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Help him build a studio and he’ll record forever...”

- Greg


In January 2018, we spent a month in Senegal to record amazing musicians. This is where it all started.

Watch this season
Episode 1 Introduction

What started out as a whim grew completely out of proportion! Where are we? Why are we there? You should get hooked on the first hit.

Episode 2 The studio

Studio acoustics is the most important aspect of recording. Treating a room on a budget is possible with a little ingenuity... Treating a room in Africa, however, requires a lot more!

Episode 3 Casavoice

Riding on top of a bus? Getting electrocuted? Recording in a living room? Why not... You don't need much to make a good record, and we'll try to show you why.

Episode 4 Black & White Production

Recording without electricity? No problem... Fabouli Diabate and his Kora are the star of this battery powered episode in Ziguinchor.

Episode 5 AsuKaTendeng Family

An old venue, a full band and a lot of energy! This is when we understood it's not all about the gear... A Bad snare and a repurposed bass amp will not stand in the way of talent.

Episode 6 Back to Sindian

Ha! So you though we just built that studio and left right? Of course not, we went back to Sindian to make the most out of our acoustical miracle! Except that one time we recorded outside...
