In 68, the young white Rolling Stones sang Child Of The Moon on the B-side of their explosive Jumping Jack Flash. With their feet glued to the English soil, they couldn’t know that in the USA, some had long dreamed of a return to the African Motherland. Nasheet Waits, one of the most prominent drummers on the US scene, is the son of one of them (a certain Freddie). With three friends and young Malian musicians, he brings the dream of the paternal generation to its highest level. With his eyes to the sky and his hands immersed in Dogon astronomy, his ears still full of the formative years with Max Roach or Ed Blackwell, this child of show-business has interstellar dreams in the plural form. Facing the moon are the Children of the Star.
