ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

"Original, inventive, thought-provoking music & words"

"This unusual duo of 5-string violin and double bass present their original blend of music and words. Their classical instrumental skills are subtly overlaid with jazz, folk & world influences. Add beautiful, thought-provoking poetry and a clear sense of theatre, and you have Ben & Alfie."

Brothers Ben & Alfie were lucky enough to travel with Senegalese musician, Seckou Keita, back to his homeland. They spent two months, living and working with West African musicians. “Taxi to Djaly Kunda” is their very personal response to the place, the people and their music.

“Spell-binding.”

“An absolutely delicious performance.”

“Beautiful, expansive and mind/heart-opening.”

(Audience comments, Summer 2010)
