Violinist Samy Bishai makes his presence known immediately on the opening track "Bimo," where his flourishes bring a completely different, exotic atmosphere to the piece. Keita uses a number of tunings, and his secret weapon is a double neck kora that gets an impressive airing on "Chelima." Bassist Davide Mantovani gets to show his chops on "Dingba Don," but the album is very much a group effort.

It's a superb disc that offers plenty of variety with touches of jazz, African funk, as well as Afro-pop. There's plenty to cheer about here, for this band doesn't just show potential — it delivers.
