      Alan Thomas: Out of Africa (19:42)

      Denis Azabagic, guitar

      Denis Azabagic invites listeners into a realm where world, folk and classical music intersect on ‘Out of Africa and Around the World,’ the Bosnia-born, Chicago-based virtuoso’s first solo album on Cedille Records. Showcasing works by living composers, the album takes its title from Alan Thomas’s evocative Out of Africa, inspired by the Karen Blixen memoir and movie of the same name. Thomas weaves together strands of African singing styles, scales and rhythms, while paying homage to African string instruments, such as the kora and the oud.
