Zopoula is the youngest of thirty-six children of a West African family. He's a moped enthusiast, orphanage volunteer, and Internet cafe proprietor. He's also a psalmist, and this is his first international recording. Hermas sings in four different languages here: French, English, Dioula, and Sissali (his mother tongue). Disc one presents a refined and practiced Hermas while the second disc is just him and a guitar in his backyard. Comparisons to singer/songwriter Seu Jorge are inevitable, but listeners will find Hermas' voice sweeter and warmer.
