O’s Notes: Israeli Avishai Cohen (b, vocals) teams up with Latin American legend Abraham Rodriguez Jr. (Congas, Vocals) for Iroko. Iroko is a Nigerian tree that can live 500+ years and is central to the culture. They open with lively percussion and chanting on “The Healer” moving into their spirited take of “Its’ A Man’s World”. Other highlights are “Avisale A Mi Vecina”, “Exodus”, “Venus” and “Fly Me To The Moon”, a fitting finale.
