- aka moon & baba sissoko & black machine: culture griot
(2009, cd, bel, cypres cyp0605)
Belgian jazz trio Aka Moon teamed up with Baba Sissoko and Black Machine to record "Culture Griot".
Those who are familiar with the music of Aka Moon and with their typical avant-garde, jazz sound, will be surprised. The collaboration with Baba Sissoko and his Black Machine band results in an album on which the african elements are very present. It's a difficult exercise and, at times, it seems difficult to locate the Aka Moon section in-between the repetitive, almost hypnotic sounding Black Machine.
Still, an Aka Moon album always is a joy to listen to.
