Album Review

In 1989, African musicians/singers Dembo Konte and Kausu Kuyateh joined forces members with the British world music unit 3 Mustaphas 3 to record Jali Roll. Insanely eclectic, 3 Mustaphas 3 is a group capable of playing Mexican ranchero one minute and Russian folk the next, only to turn around and embrace Scottish-Celtic traditions. So it comes as no surprise that they played traditional African music effectively on Jali Roll. On both original material written by Konte and Kuyateh and traditional songs of Gambia and Senegal, 3 Mustaphas 3 proved quite compatible with the Africans, both of whom handle the vocals and play the kora (an African instrument). Among the traditional songs embraced are "Lambango" and "Alla L'aa Ke." This is an album that both Mustaphas devotees and admirers of African tradition will find of interest.
