Where the title and cover photo of this album are concerned, duo Modou Touré (son of Amadou Touré, a former member of Senegalese band Toure Kunda) and Ramon Goose (a British blues musician who in 2010 already collaborated with Senegalese kora player Diabel Cissokho, resulting in the 'Mansana Blues' album) could have shown at tad more creativity, but musically 'The West African Blues Project' proves to be a solid effort. On the album Touré alternates between Wolof, Mandinka and French ('The Lighthouse Keeper') while Goose ensures a balance between the American blues and West African music tradition, with songs like opener 'Believe' or 'Kayre' even hinting at South African township jive. Excellent Euro-African collaboration!
