This album surprised me - pleasantly, though! I've heard many collaborations involving kora players, but I didn't expect such a polished work. Sekou's playing doesn't dominate, instead blends beautifully with Driscoll's rap and reggae. A great success and I look forward to the follow-up!

Wanted to hear more from these guys after learning that they are playing at a festival I'm going to soon. Checked them out online first and then took the plunge to buy the album and am really pleased I did. Cheers me up no end in this current dreary weather. I'm not a music expert so can't provide much detail on the genre etc, blah blah blah. All I know is I love all of the tunes and that's good enough for me. If you've heard a couple of tunes and think you like them then buy the album, you won't be disapointed.xx.

Saw them live, fantastic, very entertaining and great performers. Sekou Kouyate is amazing on the kora and joe Driscoll knows how to bring the different musical cultures together

A very solid album with no weak tracks. I bought it after hearing Lady on the World Service at 3am in the morning and this is still my favourite track.

Saw them on stage 3 days ago and it was one of my best concerts ever! Since then I can't stop to listen to their music which enchants everybody. One of those albums that you would take on an island...

Great album 10 Jun. 2013

I love this album, it captures the essence of world music in a new style! Joe and Sekou meld hip-hop influenced American vocals with African Kora playing (guitar like sounding instrument) in a wholly fresh way that will knock your socks off!
