Improbable meeting between the unique voice of
the senegalese singer from Paris JULIA SARR (back
vocals for Lokua Kanza, Youssou NDour, Miriam
Makeba, Oumou Sangare, Papa Wemba...) and
PATRICE LAROSEs flamenca-jazz guitar (Marcio
Faracos arranger and accompanist). While
encountering the Cante Jondo coming from the
Flamenca culture subtly re-thought by Patrice
Larose, Julia Sarr brings her golden voice closer to
the ancestral art of Senegal storytellers, the
"griots", and magically rediscovers the raw beauty
of the african continent, wich lays more than ever in
the deep core of contemporary musical world. "A
simmering album of subtle textures and futuristic
connotations, Set Luna contains equal parts
duende, that ineffable spirit at the heart of
flamenco, and a distinct Dakar-rooted sound with
an extremely promising future". "Fresh Face of
African Music". Carnegie Hall, program notes, 10/
2005
