O’s Notes: Wadada Leo Smith and Louis Moholo-Moholo are griots of sorts born during times of grave injustice in Mississippi and South Africa respectively. Wadada plays trumpet and Louis plays drums. Both use their instruments to express their inner feelings. You will hear rage, explosions of passion and natural rhythms roots in African traditional music. Ancestors is an album that begs you to absorb, embrace and reflect.
