4 stars Very strong debut album of Hungarian jazz fusion band "Djabe". Perfect sound, excellent balance of world elements and complex and very tasteful jazz fusion.

Many compositions have oriental scent, some African and oriental drums/percussion rhythms are completed with very aerial brass. Even some tasteful vocal is added in some compositions.

But album now way is just pure example or world influenced fusion. There are some compositions with blues guitar or modern city sounds. Very different, pleasant listening, but very professional at the same way.

That album started the serie of quite interesting band albums, and it's a bit pity that band's music isn't widely known ( but the band is enough popular in Central Europe and Baltics till now). Later Steve Hackett will become regular collaborator and even will participate in some band's tours.

Very recommended for modern world fusion or just beautiful music lovers.
