The superb Latin jazz pianist and composer Alex Wilson presents a band drawn from his Mali Latino project, awarded a ‘Top of the World’ accolade by Songlines Magazine. He strips back Jazz and Latin rhythms to their African roots – yet in a fresh, vibrant and modern way. With Malian Ahmed Fofana (vocals, guitar, balafon, djembe), Venezuelan Edwin Sanz (percussion and drums) and special guests Omar Puente and Rene Alvarez.
