About "Yooko"
From new CD "DZEN".
The new CD “Dzen” is his third album, preceded by the debut “Mala”, with its hit of the same name, and the follow-on album “Etoo”. “Dzen” means “world” and embodies Adjiri Odametey’s vision of his world music: music that connects the world, whose rhythm and melodies build bridges among cultures. The unfamiliar instrumentation is what makes these songs so fascinating, and the catchy melodies have a way of staying with you. Some pieces feature rousing rhythms, others melancholic stillness.
