Lionel Loueke's signature is one of limitless rhythmic invention. He has established a unique identity born of the synthesis between West African and Brazilian music within the modern jazz idiom.

In Loueke's compositions, these influences fuse together, creating evocative African textures spliced with a Guitar sound that channels the phrasing of a kora. When combined with his voice, Loueke's unique sound transports the listener even further.

This collection is suitable for intermediate-advanced level guitarists and features the pieces Farafina, Ouidah, Akwe, Benny's Tune and more.
