About the Album

The latest single by Taal Inc. & Friends is ‘Kassa’ which literally means ‘Granary’ in the West-African language, Malinke. This is a traditional West-African rhythm played to celebrate a good harvest or to encourage farmers working on the field. This avatar of the song by Taal Inc. & Friends is a jazz pop interpretation of the djembe & dunun rhythms translated on the drum kit and western jazz instrumentation. This is our way to wish prosperity to one and all. We are all going through unprecedented times and this is our way to remind ourselves of what we have and count our blessings. May this song provide you the courage to smile, breathe easy and continue moving forward with love, dignity and kindness.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
