It‘s a story of two wonderful musicians who met in the remote land of Lithuania. A small country with a big musical heart. Blues musician Mighty Mo Rodgers (USA) and the keeper of ancient African Griot traditions, Baba Sissoko (Mali)…found common ground in (this) their Griot Blues sound.

Encouraged by a local entrepreneur, Jay Svarplys, they recorded an album. Magic happened. Baba Sissoko doesn’t speak English and Mighty Mo Rodgers speaks neither French or Italian. But who cares about language when the connection is the universal language of…music!
Improvisation, inspiration and determination were the keys. The result is remarkable. Three amazing musicians: Luca Giordano, Walter Monini, and Pablo Leoni rounded out the ensemble of musicians.
From the ancient ritual of the African storyteller, embodied in Baba Sissoko, and the Blues mojo of Mighty Mo Rodgers, we bring you Griot Blues.
After recording the album we translated the lyrics, putting them to paper. Surprisingly, Baba and Mo were singing about the same thing. So this album was born from the depths of the human soul, where limits disappear. And where the American Blues musician felt his African roots and the African Griot storyteller welcomed the Blues… back home.

Esce martedì 18 ottobre 2016 Djelibit, un progetto unico che riunisce al suo interno tre differenti anime artistiche, solo apparentemente molto lontane. Il disco, prodotto da XXXV Label, con la collaborazione editoriale di IRMA Records e Materiali Musicali, rappresenta l’ultimo lavoro discografico di Baba Sissoko, polistrumentista griot maliano già noto per aver contaminato il jazz con la musica nera, che qui si avvale della collaborazione di Nicodemo, produttore discografico attivo da anni nel campo della ricerca musicale, e del featuring delle Lilies On Mars, duo femminile italiano ma di stanza a Londra che si muove fra alt techno e atmosfere shoegaze.Copertina Djelibit
