RAVI combines his instrumental talents with those of various eastern and western musicians. Also featured on this CD are some of Denmark’s leading jazz musicians, such as legendary guitarist, Pierre Dorge. Ravi himself also plays guitar, mandolin, bass, keyboards, a variety of percussive instruments, and handles lead vocals, too. It’s certainly an attractive sound – reminiscent of Osibisa and Santana at times, with everything underpinned by Ravi’s melodically colourful (hence the title, presumably) kora work. Some pieces even reveal a Celtic flavour or two, as on ‘Oh Yes’.
