Koo Nimo: Guitar and vocals.
Vishal Nagar: Tabla

Produced by James Whetzel.

Notes by James Whetzel: I was studying palm-wine guitar with the legendary Ghanaian musician Koo Nimo at the same time that I was learning tabla from the Indian tabla prodigy Vishal Nagar. I decided to get my teachers together, and we did several recording sessions. These five beautiful tracks recorded at Conrad Uno's Egg Studio's were the best results. This EP was released on CD for Koo Nimo & Vishal Nagar's performances at the WOMAD Festival in Redmond, WA in the summer of 1999.
