KARIBU is the stunning Blue Note debut from guitarist & vocalist Lionel Loueke. One of the most creative new voices in Jazz today, Loueke's star is on the rise. Born in Benin, West Africa, Loueke possess an instantly recognizable sound that blends his African roots with a modern Jazz concept that he's honed while performing with his mentors, the legends Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter & Terence Blanchard.

KARIBU (Swahili for welcome) features Loueke's trio of bassist Massimo Biolcati & drummer Ferenc Nemeth with very special guests Herbie Hancock & Wayne Shorter making rare sideman appearances, on a set of seven Loueke originals & distinct versions of John Coltrane's “Naima" & the standard “Skylark."

“Mr. Loueke is a gentle virtuoso."
-The New York Times
