“The Silver Tongued Seducer”
“A thought-provoking, organic musical experience that takes you places.”

FMG is proud to present DiaRGi's new single!
DiaRGi & Rogiérs team
up for the first time in this soulful feature covering the Brook Benton and Etta James classic "I'll Take Care of You".
"What DiaRGi and Rogiérs do is return the song to its blues and gospel roots. It captures the pleading, soul bearing honesty and vulnerability that Bland brought to the 1959 original, while also bringing in the element of two men using their unique vocal instruments to make a competing yet harmonic case that each is the one to bring that needed comfort."
Featured on "Higher Ground" is percussionist and drummer Fernando Garcia (IG: FernandoGarciaMusic), a native of Puerto Rico, collaborative partner and former classmate. Garcia's ritual drum pattern (La Bomba) grounds the song in West African musical, social and religious identity as both a reminder of our diaspora inheritance and the primary source of racial contempt in the US and abroad. Rogiérs's vocals and arrangement updates the original rendition with deference, warm inflection and a soaring vocal rich with nuance, subtlety and respect for the Stevie's recording.
Commissioned in November 2021, Rogiérs covered "Higher Ground" Stevie Wonder for the launch of the Reimagine Religious Freedom Mobile Institute. His recording pays homage to the 2020 "Year of Reckoning" and documents social justice protests, activism and the critical work of interfaith alliances fighting class hierarchies and injustices worldwide.
