Album Notes
Paul Horn’s professional career is already far longer than Sekou Camara Cobra’s life. Paul Horn’s rise to prominence as a jazz flute and sax player in the 1950’s, began his acclaimed globetrotting musical journeys in the 1960’s; helped to pave the way for the burgeoning world music and New Age trends in the 1970’s and 80’s; and recorded the album simply called Africa, in September of 1993. Sekou Camara Cobra was born in the Ivory Coast of West Africa; became a master drummer with a few Western students; died two months after making this album, at the age of 44. It is one of Paul Horn’s most remarkable collaborations. Yes, it crosses cultures but so does most of Horn’s music. It crosses generations too, but Horn’s music has never acknowledged age. Heck, it barely acknowledges time, achieving a timeless state that’s often imitated but somehow rarely duplicated. No, what makes Africa unique is it’s pairing of a world-renowned flutist with Grammy nominations and gold records, with a gifted but obscure musician from a rich but obscure musical tradition. Africa is a testament to Paul Horn’s keen ear and his generosity of spirit.
