- New Orleans +
2002 was the year of New Orleans in the life of Djabe. The audience were able
to purchase tickets for more than 10 concerts. Tunes were gathered around different
topics on each and every night. Three performances were assembled from World
Music influences. At the first concert we played the compositions bearing African
music elements. On the second night pieces moulded with Arabic and Latin sounds
were heard. On the third night North-American Indian and Indonesian compositions
were on the plate, and material for the CD was collected from these concerts.
Quite a few tracks, such as Zulu, Tuesday Afternoon and Bali Wind, were made
especially for these performances, therefore they had not been heard before the
concerts, and have not since.
