From many countries they came, to this land folks called “the high country”. Wherever, however they got here, the common thread is “Africa”. Along the way we have absorbed and been absorbed into many lands and musical traditions. What you hear in this small offering, is that ancient soul, living now, in a dynamic relationship with the present.

“In a way, I guess you might say I am a bit like Pete Williams, a Louisiana bluesman, who had few links to any recognized tradition. Like him, I grew up almost altogether apart from the influences of my contemporaries. My music is more lived than studied.”

- Harrison Kennedy
