Lionel Loueke's signature is one of limitless rhythmic invention. He has established a unique identity born of the synthesis between West African and Brazilian music within the modern jazz idiom. In his compositions, these influences fuse together, creating evocative African textures spliced with a guitar sound that channels the phrasing of a kora. When combined with his voice, Loueke's unique sound transports the listener even further. This book contains 21 original compositions and 5 solo transcriptions which give the reader insight into the compositional language of guitarist-vocalist Lionel Loueke.
