The texts are as always a present from various elves, djinns and the orishas. Transcribed freely by Xavier Vacher a.k.a «Lundo Chango » and the music is a family affair, Except for «la bohême solaire» (Lundo/F. Pétrel) and «dice la tarde» F.Garcia Lorca/La Chango Family

This album is dedicated to the two little elves in our lives, Tao et Zïa … And to the two inspiring countries that are Mexico and Senegal … Dieuredieuf !!!
