Recorded in a fishing village in Northern Senegal, with an ever present backdrop of children's voices culminating in a clapping and stomping rhythm section. Debut release on Sahel Sounds & Mississippi Records new international imprint "Songs from Home."

Limited edition LP of 500 with hand-glued sleeves.
