Groovy Giver

400px-tricky_mp3h1944 Electronica star Tricky (above) certainly knows how to do good while feeling good. The British-born singer/music maker is giving back big-time to his multi-culti fans via a new recording studio and community center in a protest-prone part of Paris.

The space is in Paris’ Flandres district — a quarter headlined by grim statistics such as 20 percent unemployment and 60 percent of locals living in public housing. But with some 30 different ethnic groups in the area, Flandres is also one of Paris’ most vibrant — now even more so thanks to Tricky’s latest tricks.
