Lo'Jo releases new album Oct 9

Recorded in a French barn between two expressways, Lo'Jo's new release Cinéma el Mundo (Record label: World Village) exudes Saharan blues, unshaven French jazz, ancient cosmopolitan roots, and hazy Euro-pop.  Lead vocalist Denis Péan will remind you of the shamanic twin of Tom Waits.  Among those beyond the 30-year-old sextet proper are a wide array of contributing pilgrims who traveled to aforementioned barn to make their imprint on this album including Vincent Segal, members of Tinariwen, Robert Wyatt and more.
