Release of Afro-Jazz CD 'Xelu Sowu'
- Hi everybody,
my new CD is out !
It is basically the same melting-pot as in 'Muzungu', but Xelu Sowu
is mostly inspired by the music of West Africa, hence it's title
(Xelu Sowu means The Spirit of the West in wolof).
There is some mbalax, yella, mandingo ballad, mutuashi and even a
congolese samba with a sukus part!
I play guitar and keyboards, the saxes are played by Pierre Vaiana
and Phil Leblanc, percussions by Serigne Gueye, Chris Thirion and
Bilou Donneux, flute by Pierre Bernard and there are also other
instruments such as oboe, english horn and even hoddu (xalam) by
Malick Pathe Sow.
This is jazz, folks, so there is no vocalist ...
