This is a melodically exquisite instrumental album of domestic jam sessions with some of mali’s finest musicians, including renowned Malian singer/songwriter Sidi Toure and Oumou Sangare’s guitarist: Kalifa Kone.

the brainchild project of producer extraordinaire Dan Harper, who rose to prominence with his internationally acclaimed Ethiopian fusion albums, This is an incredible coming together of some of Bamako’s finest musicians with Dan’s visionary production skills. The recording sessions took place over a month inside a rented house, in-keeping with the true organic nature of the project, the musicians jammed with Dan to produce tracks on the fly - both parties keen to hear and work with the other’s culture and style. As with previous Invisible System projects, everything is a first take and improvised on the spot, making it spontaneous and real.
