A buoyant live session with Lo'Jo, a wide-ranging multicultural and counter-cultural band very highly regarded in European world music circles. Lo'Jo sprung from a communal artistic collective in Angers, France in the early '80s and has retained that spirit: Members still live and work collectively in a farmhouse given to them by the mayor of Angers in exchange for teaching music to local kids. Among many accomplishments over the years, Lo'Jo helped launch the first edition of the now famous Festival in the Desert in northern Mali in 2001, and won a BBC World Music Award in 2007.

Special thanks to Dave Mambach for mix assistance!
