Lionel Loueke - Mwaliko


For his second Blue Note recording Lionel Loueke decided to do an album of duo and trio recordings. Mwaliko is an 'invitation' (literally, in Swahili) to both his collaborating musicians (there are six) and to listeners. I'm very happy to be part of this project and proud to also have one of my compositions - Shazoo - featured.
