O’s Notes: Guitarist, vocalist and composer Lionel Loueke combines his talents with a wealth of fine musicians including pianist/producer Robert Sadin, bassist Pino Palladio, John Ellis on soprano sax and highly lauded percussionist Cyro Baptista. The pulse of his West African heritage underscores Loueke’s music.“The Journey“is also a testimony to the refugees and migrants around the world who face increasing hostility from western nations. The music has a very calming effect relaxing listeners and lulling them into a sense of appreciation for different new and adventurous sounds.
