Rec. 1990, at Volksparkstudio, Hamburg, Germany
The music on Koko is a fascinating blend, with the dominant root being traditional Mande djembe and griot style compositions. Within a given tune the flow can seamlessly transition from a total “roots” feeling through deep FUNK and onward into soaring flights of jazz. There’s a sense of Herbie Mann meets Mamady Keita, with the rest of the musicians also fully participating as soloists in an on-going musical conversation. The group has formed around flutist Dieter Weberpals who evidently has a fascination with the music of West Africa, South America, India and the Orient. He is a very lyrical, inventive and accomplished player. Barry Sangare from Mali provides vocals, n‘goni and some very tasty djembe playing. A former member of Adama Drame‘s performing ensemble and he is also the leader of his own group playing festivals and dances in Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso. Gert Kilian, in addition to playing both djembes and congas, is also a fine balaphon player. Robert Hofman is the guitarist/ bass player whose bass lines clearly indicate an interest in traditional dunun patterns. Werner Treiber rounds out the group on traps and vibes.

There‘s a sense of Herbie Mann meets Mamady Keita, with the rest of the musicians also fully participating as soloists in an on-going musical conversation. Dieter Weberpals’ flute has a unique voice of it‘s own, without ever burying the deep African groove. Sangare‘s djembe playing is the best example I have heard of the instrument being used with great effect in a more “western” style band. He‘s got all the technical chops, a very clean hand and plays with plenty of space. His accents around the other players are out of this world! Gert Kilian‘s balaphon plays a constant crucial role in maintaining the West African vibe. The compositions are consistently diverse, interesting and very well executed! Dieter Weberpals seems to have the knack of finding great musicians AND creating a context where they ALL shine. I highly recommend this disc to anyone interested in West African music blended with other non-traditional elements. The music is bright, happy and consistently stimulating!
