Biography

Pure wizardry. The art of the improvisers beyond all borders.
Preaching equality for all the idioms, anticipating the gathering wave
of “world music”, drawing on traditions from all the continents,
Codona was like no other band. Its sound: simultaneously poetic and
powerfully evocative and stamped, in every second, with character.
Summoned into being by Collin Walcott in 1978, the trio provided an
utterly original context for Don Cherry’s starkly melodic trumpet and
for the multi-instrumentalism of all three players.

Don Cherry - trumpet, doussn’gouni, flutes, organ, melodica, voice
Nana Vasconcelos - berimbau, cuica, talking drum, percussion, voice
Collin Walcott - sitar, tabla, hammered dulcimer, sanza, timpani, voice
