Original music by Damawa

Glossary:

Damawa (dah mah wah): The Nigerian verb "to mix". This is what we do...with our ideas, sounds and inspirations. The result is your multicultural experience of the Damawa Effect.

haj-paj (hahdj pahdj): The aural connotation is obvious. Also of significance, haj (or hajj) is the annual religious journey to Mecca.

Recording & engineering by Jim Skeel
* except for live recordings and engineering by Christian Hankel. (see individual song notes)
