West African guitarist ​Lionel Loueke​ was inspired by his brother, who taught him how to play during his late teenage years. Stops at the Ivory Coast’s National Institute of Arts, Paris’ American School of More Than Music, and Berklee College of Music led ​Loueke​ to appearances on a series of high-profile recordings, including ​Terence Blanchard​‘s ​Bounce​ and Flow​, ​Charlie Haden​‘s ​Land of the Sun​, and ​Herbie Hancock​‘s ​Possibilities​. Apart from his role in the trio ​Gilfema​ (with bassist ​Massimo Biolcati​ and drummer ​Ferenc Nemeth​), L​oueke​ has recorded on his own, including the live ​In a Trance​ and ​Virgin Forest​. He released his first Blue Note album, ​Karibu​, in 2008. In 2009, ​Loueke​ guested on ​Magos Herrera​‘s album D​ istancia​. His second album for Blue Note, ​Mwaliko​, appeared in early 2010. In 2012, ​Loueke​ released the trio album ​Heritage​, which was produced by and features contributions from acclaimed jazz pianist Robert Glasper​.

On ​Gaïa​, his fourth album, ​Loueke​ continued use of the electric guitar exclusively. He explored expansive notions of African rock and jazz with ​Biolcati​ and ​Nemeth​. The album was recorded in front of an invited studio audience, fulfilling the guitarist’s wish to capture the band in a concert setting. The album was released by Blue Note at the end of October in 2015.

    This is for my father. He is from Africa, and going through a divorce right now to his American wife. He needs some beautiful music from Africa to lift his spirits and bring him home. Thanks for thinking of us.
