Bethany & Rufus, Yacouba Moumouni and Bonga Jean-Baptiste – Trouble In The Land (2020)

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡น Exceptional collaboration between American, Nigerian and Haitian artists, who tell the story of the Earth to all of us, who live together.

Trouble In The Land came here and there. It happened in the past, it continues coming back again and again. So many creatures are suffering, or are killed, or disintegrated somehow.

This is what the album is about. Stories about the world, about the people and conflicts that occur every day. Four different people, four cultures, one world.

Bethany Yarrow and Rufus Cappadocia are from USA. They have been performing for years together, joining powerful voice of Bethany with majestic sound of strings played by Rufus. Yacouba Moumouni comes from Niger and brings unbelievably touchy voice of Fulani flute. He also sings and plays percussion and ngoni. Bonga Jean-Baptiste from Haiti is also responsible for beats.
