[JAZZ GOES TO DAKAR] Born in Germany, schooled at Boston’s jazz-generator Berklee School and entranced by Africa, singer-guitarist Leni Stern—who also plays ngoni, a West-African predecessor to the banjo—follows a long line of Western musicians inspired by Africa, directly or otherwise, and maintains a direct connection via band members Alioune Faye and electric bassist Mamadou Ba. Her previous Portland visit and album revolved around Malian music, but her new album, Jelell, has origins in Dakar, Senegal, where it was recorded. Subjects range from lullabies to rain prayers to songs about Senegalese wrestling. Though Stern’s recessive singing adds little, her combination of jazz improv, African instruments and tunes should satisfy fans of both.
