About the Album

The latest single by Taal Inc. & Friends is ‘Kassa’ which literally means ‘Granary’ in the West-African language, Malinke. This is a traditional West-African rhythm played to celebrate a good harvest or to encourage farmers working on the field. This avatar of the song by Taal Inc. & Friends is a jazz pop interpretation of the djembe & dunun rhythms translated on the drum kit and western jazz instrumentation. This is our way to wish prosperity to one and all. We are all going through unprecedented times and this is our way to remind ourselves of what we have and count our blessings. May this song provide you the courage to smile, breathe easy and continue moving forward with love, dignity and kindness.
