North African trance music at its most intense. They have worked and been closely associated with The Rolling Stones, Ornette Coleman, Paul Bowles, William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Donovan and many others.
In this concert, they are alined once again with longtime collaborator Bill Laswell and the Material collective. master drummer Hamid Drake, Senegalese percussionist Aiyb Dieng, Graham Hayens on Cornet, Peter Apfelbaum on reeds. This is true dialogue and communication, not programmed fusion.

I heard this album and IMMEDIATELY fell in love with this band!!! Take my money!!! Interestingly Sunflower and Long Way Home had me thinking of Elvin Jones.
Honestly, this band truly is incredible! If you have friends incapable of grasping what's going on here, TRADE UP! Jonathan Pryor
