Review: Sultry songstress Douye takes listeners by the hand and assuredly leads them through an enchanting and intoxicating stroll amidst the rich sounds of Brazil and the percussive shimmer of Africa. This sixteen-song effort is heartfelt and glides impeccably with a mood-enhancing glow. Throughout the disc, Douye rides the crest of instrumental ripples that touch the shoreline with finesse and tenderness. A brilliant enclave of notable and accomplished jazz musicians adds their collective talents to an array of ensembles.
