A group born out of the fantastic funk group The Poets Of Rhythm and led by sax player Johannes Schleiermacher, this Moroccan-influenced project brought together ten musicians for an intense recording session that birthed this wonderful collection of West African funk. Mulatu Astatke and Les Mogol are clearly heavy influences on this album, which come with heavy rasping brass sections (such as on the slinky "Gaaf") and punchy live drums. A real treat for fans of the Eithiopiques collections, of Afro-beat or just any superior funky goodness.
