Jazz Kora Ba! says
More than seven years in the making, Jazz Kora Ba! brings together elements of West African music with aspects of African-American Jazz and contemporary music. The goal is to create a new, cross-cultural jazz sound while retaining respect for the oral traditional music of West Africa. All of the music of this first recording consists of traditional African songs that have been adapted to the contemporary jazz stylings of JAZZ KORA BA!
