Legendary jazz master Don Laka returns with a stellar album entitiled ‘Afro Chopin’. Merging traditional jazz, classical music and African rhythms, Laka has managed to craft a streamlined and concise album which is beautifully intricate and highly skilful. Taking on the works of Chopin is no mean feat and Don Laka has really excelled in transforming classic romantic piano arrangements and breathing new life into them.
Every track from the album has its own unique charm and presence but it is Prelude No 20 (Izulu) that steals the show. The lead single is smooth, beautifully molded and the perfect introduction to the stellar album.
