Purists may have problems with it when German musicians like the “white griot” Tormenta Jobarteh who grew up in Munich immerse themselves in a completely different culture acquire craft skills over¬†many years including learning the Kora, language and other strange rituals of an exotic music tradition.¬†Although the often much vaunted “authenticity” is missing, the bandleader succeeded and has managed to produce¬†world music at a high level for over twenty years. He has performed more then a thousand concerts and¬†produced quality recordings, witch can also exist internationally. To mark the 20th anniversary of the band,¬†Jobarteh,¬†together with daughter Yasmina (Vocal,perc) and longtime collaborators Humphrey Cairo (dr,b)¬†Felix Occhionero (g,b) and Gerhard Wagner (sax,fl) present a fourth studio album. “Teriya” brings together on a congenial way music of the Manding, Afrobeat, Reggae, Calypso and Latin flavours. Guests including Roman Bunka (Oud)¬†who brings a middle eastern sound and Sir Lancelot Scott¬† (stellpan) who brings a Caribbean flair. The song¬†content is diverse, also political as in ” White Bubu ” a reckoning with the Gambian dictator Jammeh
