New library-type recordings of Fourth World sounds seem to be pretty in vogue at the moment and Bo'Weavil fingerpicker C. Joynes is in on the action with his Leith Hill Recordings label and this CDr of Sanneh Kuyate called Kaiye & Sajyo, also the names of the two whopping tracks involved. He's pretty much jamming on a simple, repetitive riff on a Kora (a 21 string harp type thing it seems) while having what sounds like crazy banter with the partygoers around him but apparently it's the texts of standard tunes he's reciting. It's a hypnotic listen, quite remarkable for the consistency of his playing, and with the lively background sounds you could easily close your eyes and imagine you're engrossed in some fine Gambian revelry. Transporatative!
