I don't think I've actually posted about Lo'Jo before, though they have been one of my favorite global bands since I first caught them live back at the first (I think) WOMAD USA. They're a loose collection of musicians, though always at the core are Denis Pean, Richard Bourreau, and the Nid El Mourid sisters Nadia and Yamina.
To me, their sound is dark yet open, a moody musical seaport open to influences from many lands but maintaining a core identity. You may hear in their music sounds from Africa (djembe, kora), along with vocal harmonies that evoke North Africa or the Middle East, combined with accordeon, flute, bass, and more. But instead of struggling through more attemted description, let me provide you with the sound:
from the album Mojo Radio
Lo'Jo has a new album just out called Cosmophono, and I'm eager to get my hands on it. I'll let you know when I do.
