For me this album is not quirte as strong as the other DVDA discs from Djabe, the music again is a jazz folk fusion and a good Surround mix.
The music is very well recorded, and some good guests Ben Castle being a stand out.

51 minutes of extra concert video along with 71 minutes of original album.

good to have but for me not their best

Giving this one an '8'.

A nice pleasant listen, but nothing too exciting. As a matter of fact in many ways, it all starts to sound very much alike, especially after 73 mins!
With that being said, it's a good, clean disc with nice, discrete separation. The music fits well for surround sound.
I wonder what their other discs are like...

Another great Djabe disc.
My only caveat: despite what it says on the the back cover there is no MLP 2.0. Only stereo option is Dolby Digital on the video side of the disc. The down mix icon appeared on my player so I set the speakers to stereo only, I think that worked. Sounded great; didn’t seem like anything was missing when compared to the DD version.
Will rate it after I listen in 5.1
