SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars After two perfect album, third one is different thing. I like Hungarian band "Djabe" for their excellent sound, complex and very professional compositions and unique mixture of world and jazz fusion, where world elements are only material for doing jazz fusion more rich in sound, melodies and techniques. First two band's albums were both like that. Not the third.

After two first albums band became very popular around country and decided to increase world component in their music. So, their third album is world fusion album with few jazz elements ( and I think it is most world oriented Djabe album till now).

Now even usual instruments sound different: they missed their aerial clear sound for more warm and rounded one. Arrangements became simplier,a ll music (still of great quality) sounds often as soundtrack to Travel Channel on TV.

Musically mixture of different world music areas, from Balkan and Slavic to African and South- East Asian, album missed it jazz or progressive component almost at all. Only deep bass and some sax in few places remind previous Djabe sound. To be honest, world fusion of this album is of highest quality, but it is music for another fans.
