LO’JO — Fonetiq Flowers (Sept. 22, 2017)

              LO’JO — Fonetiq Flowers (Sept. 22, 2017) LO’JO — Fonetiq Flowers (Sept. 22, 2017)★★       Long~tenured eclectic world music ensemble formed in Angers, France in 1982.
Editorial Reviews
★★       The French band Lo’Jo was founded in 1982 by Denis Péan and Richard Bourreau. ★★       Their unique blend of gipsy, North African and French folk elements soon won them legions of fans. Now, with over fifteen albums under their belt, and collaborations with a wide range of prestigious artists (Robert Plant, Tinariwen, Archie Shepp), on [Fonetiq Flowers], they chart new waters. Although Péan’s distinctive arrangements can still be heard, it may be their least “multicultural” album. It is also undoubtedly the most pop oriented, thanks to the presence of keyboardist Albin de La Simone and the rapper from Swiss band Puts Marie. [Fonetiq Flowers] is like a new start, with the all endless possibilities that affords.

★★       Lo’Jo: Fonetiq Flowers review — poetic veterans take a kaleidoscopic journey
★★       Lo’Jo might be veterans of the world music scene, but the French band can still surprise. Starting out in the early 1980s, they created a distinctive style in which the gruff voice and poetic lyrics of pianist Denis Péan are matched with edgy, driving vocals of Algerian sisters Nadia and Yamina Nid el Mourid, along with influences that range from chanson and jazz to African music. This new album was recorded while travelling in Africa, South Korea and the US, and is one of their best. Péan is in fine, laid~back voice, backed by a kaleidoscope of sounds, with layers of keyboard, violin, Korean zither and oud, along with trumpet by Erik Truffaz. The sisters take the lead on a couple of songs, including the jaunty Noisy Flower. All that is missing from this sophisticated, robust set is a translation of the intriguing lyrics.
