Rhythm and Flow

Rhythm and Flow
CD-2008 - A live-in-the-studio, red-hot, way-cool, free-flow fusion of World Music, Jazz, and Spoken Word. Musicians from Senegal, Guinee, Ethiopia and America create some distinctive flavors and great chemistry.

Rhythm and Flow is the third recording in the "rhythm trilogy" that includes "Rhythm Mission" and "Rhythm Griots." It's a look into how this ensemble has evolved and changed over two decades, and how this evolution has changed the music.
