“All forms of expression in sound are valid, as all people are… this is the mantra of Ancestral Recall.” —Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah
The music of Ancestral Recall focuses the mind. As the ear adjusts to the shifting tapestries of rhythm, Adjuah stands firm in the mix, heralding the histories of rhythm and song. Walking hand-in-hand with listeners through his and their musical histories, clearing the way for a new reading of what all musical futures can become, Ancestral Recall is an album that will certainly be seen as a moment in history that marked a momentous shift in musical and perhaps social understanding.
