Monday's mp3: Fantastic Fulani Fusion

CD REVIEW
A Fula's Call: Mark Lotz Meets Omar Ka - Liingu (Lop Lop Records)
A Fula's Call: Mark Lotz Meets Omar Ka - on SoundRoots.org
From the banks of the Niger River, Senegalese griot Omar Ka somehow found his way to the Netherlands, where he recorded this rollicking collection of 14 songs with German flautist Mark Alban Lotz, French guitarist Raphael Vanoli, and Iranian percussionist Afra Mussawisade. A hint of jazz infuses the music, as well as a touch of Indian tabla -- consider those the wings of a group whose musical roots are clearly in Africa. A stellar example of acoustic global fusion from artists at the top of their game.
