Wally Badarou

Musician and producer Wally Badarou may not be a household name, but his fingers have jammed the synth melodies that grace some of the most memorable and irresistible songs in modern music. From Fela to Jagger to James Brown, it’s way easier to talk about the musicians Wally hasn’t worked with. Still, in his lecture at the 2006 Red Bull Music Academy, Wally breaks down some secrets behind working with Sly and Robbie, as well as treading the murky path of intellectual copyright, while also offering a fly on the keyboard view of recording Pop Music with Robin Scott and explaining why he refused to sign that contract with the ‘Godfather of Funk’.
