  • This encounter between the brilliant nomad of Senegalese music and the Cuban piano prodigy reflects a stimulating adventure. With solar rhythms, pulsating melodies and tracks moving from cha-cha-cha through rumba, salsa and even chaâbi, Africa takes on the colours of Cuba and Latin jazz. With support from high-flyers, the two leaders are writing a new chapter in the already rich story of the musical exchange between Africa and the Caribbean. Guests include Sara Tavares, Aziz Sahmaoui, Wolfgang Muthspiel and Orchestra Aragon.

    Senegalese Alioune Wade alias ALUNE is a virtuoso bass player and a singer with the voice of an angel. He has been the bass player for versatile artists like Ismael Lo, Youssou N'Dour, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Bobby McFerrin, Mamani Keita, Henri Dikongue, Joe Zawinul, to mention a few. Harold Lopez-Nussa is the Cuban hotshot pianist with three previous releases through Harmonia Mundi. A player of astonishing gifts, combining dazzling technique and an abundance of soul, López-Nussa has fully integrated his classical training and love of the jazz continuum with his Cuban roots
