Mr Raoul K
Mr Raoul K – Still Living In Slavery / WAS Distribution
Conceptually, an exploration of "aspects of inner and outer slavery. Slavery is no longer people put in chains by others, but people put in chains by themselves. But only one group of the enchained will admit to their chain. This album stands against cultural hegemonism and commits itself to getting together without prejudice." The record also sees Raoul K exploring his love of African rhythms and percussion. Several artists guest on the LP, including Hamed Sosso, Sona Diabate, Batakali A.K. Tenekdash, Adama Conde and Japanese musician Kuniyuki Takashi, who plays flute and piano. It'll come out on Raoul K's own label, Baobab Music.
