ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A duo of 'vocalizing' tambin (african flute) masters lead this neo-traditional vocal and instrumental ensemble through a repertoire that bridges Africa and the New World. The YouTube hit song "Obama" epitomizes the spirit of the album in its cross-integration of the ancient Mande praise-song in the service of honoring the new American President. Daring horn arrangements bring the African sound into modernity while griot epics pay respects to the roots.

Fula Flute previously released to substantial critical acclaim the seminal self-titled CD “Fula Flute” in 2002. That led to performances such as the opening of Zankel Hall and a concert there the following season with El Hadj Djeli Sory Kouyate, widely-respected balafonist, Dean of Mande musicians. Music from “Fula Flute” has, and continues to be, a staple of Guinean radio-television and movies, and the track “Keme Bourema,” was licensed to the recently released “Desert Blues III.” Fula Flute has put the tambin on the map and inspired a new generation of players around the world.

With Mansa America, this six-piece virtuoso ensemble offers twelve tracks of high-level, uplifting music. But more than that, Mansa America is a mind altering experience.
