The Voices album stems from three sources: Yorubaland, Cuba and the Mississippi delta, The binding factor is Africa and the indigenous religion of West Africa, Orisa.
Saki and Rabiu Ayandokun come as purveyors of an ancient musical tradition that is neglected and unfashionable in its place of origin. Their European collaborators come steeped in Cuban musical forms and the blues. Not one of the band has ever visited Mississippi, but somehow the restless spirit of Robert Johnson haunts this particular crossing of paths.
