compositions by Lionel Loueke unless otherwise indicated

Ten years ago, a guitarist from Benin, a bassist born in Sweden and raised in Italy, and a drummer from Hungary met at Berklee College of Music. In over 10 years since, they've developed an incredible rapport, nominally fronted by Lionel Loueke's quietly intricate guitar and vocal techniques. Loueke, Massimo Biolcati and Ferenc Nemeth played favorites from their repertoire upon their return to their alma mater during Boston's First Night celebrations.

Personnel: Lionel Loueke, guitar/vocals; Massimo Biolcati, bass; Ferenc Nemeth, drums.
