Album Notes
"Original songs, impeccable guitar styles, great vocals, moving lyrics" (Annie Trimble, musician and house concert host)

The songs I write are often called contemporary folk or Americana. I don’t mind but I sometimes chafe at the limitations of the latter, in that it seems to confine us to a relatively monochromatic (rural white) and geographically limited cultural space. The name of this recording reflects more closely my personal geography, which includes ties of friendship on both sides of the Atlantic--France, Portugal, England, Norway, Germany, Spain, Senegal, Morocco, Jamaica, Brazil, Mexico, Angola and Quebec,--with the richness of language and culture that this list implies.
