Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2009-01-21 
Solo kora and drum, plus vocals. All instruments played by him. A very clean, traditional sound with a strong spiritual content. Really beautiful. He doesn’t have a perfect voice, but somehow the roughness adds a sort of honesty.

*1. Bright and flowing, with a sweet melody and a joyful sound.
2. Slow, elegant, like a hymn. Warm and lightly swaying.
*3. Tripping kora, midtempo w/sweet use of drum. Picks up a bit.
4. Midtempo, slightly wailing vocals. Lovely solo kora.
5. Relaxed folk strings intro, layers of vocals, slightly sad.
6. Midtempo song of praise w/a gentle, warm melody.
