Voyagers – ‘Chasing Light’

Hailing from New York, Voyagers are an acoustic trio who have released their spellbinding album ‘Chasing Light’, in April 2022. It is a unique and compelling release that you need to hear this Spring. 

‘Today Is A New Day’ is an upbeat and infectious opening to the album. Wonderful melodies fill the sonic spectrum and instantly draw the listener in. We enjoyed ‘Raise Your Voice’; it is filled with layers of textures and driving melodies. 

In addition, ‘Danama’ is a standout song. From a gentle opening, the listener is taken on a journey filled with vivid colours and a brilliant vocal performance. 

The guitar work on ‘Lamban’ is outstanding. As the other instruments enter, the musicians dance with one another in sonic bliss. ‘Cheri’ closes the release and leaves the audience reaching for the repeat button. 

Interestingly, there are no drums on the album. Instead, kora, saxophone, and guitar take centre stage. The musicians interweave spontaneous melodies to a solid groove, and they effortlessly have the audience hooked!

Band Members

Voyagers are comprised of band members Yacouba Sissoko, Edith Lettne, and Banning Eyre. They are world-class musicians, and their skill and musicianship shine through during ‘Chasing Light’. When the trio play together, something magical happens. 

New York

Voyagers have been playing together since meeting in New York in 2013. They weave in and out of each other’s playing styles effortlessly and create music that fills the soul. 

The band have been performing gigs in intimate NYC jazz and world-music venues such as Farafina, Barbes, and Silvana. So if you get a chance to see this magnificent group of musicians, do not hesitate, go!
