Benin-born jazz guitarist and vocalist Lionel Loueke combines harmonic sophistication, soaring melodies and grounding in West African music to create a warm, intimate sound. Praised by mentor Herbie Hancock as "a musical painter," Loueke was featured on Hancock's 2008 albumRiver: The Joni Letters, Lionel has also recorded with Terence Blanchard and Angelique Kidjo.
"Lionel Loueke sing and his music rolls along with a feel-good sense of joy...a new Afro-jazz star." DownBeat
