"I've seen the wonders of the world... but there is nothing like the place where I was born." In this reflective number, Irene thanks her parents for the upbringing that gave her good values and strong faith in God. Wistful harmonica phrases by the virtuoso Adam Glasser underpin Irene's sweet vocal harmonies.
Across these songs, Ethiopian jazz, African psychedelic rock and funk, Sudanese dance rhythms, and Tuaregi grooves mingle with the jazz and folk traditions of the Americas. Bandcamp Album of the Day Mar 19, 2019
