Holy Forest – Africa Calling

Holy Forest is a musical project from songwriter and documentary filmmaker Jon Fine, who recorded an album over 3 years across the Gambia and several cities in the United States. “Africa Calling,” the lead single from the self-titled Holy Forest LP, pairs the virtuosic sounds of Gambian griot Tata Din Din Jobarteh with the robust vocals of Harlem-based singer Ed “Preachermann” Holley and horns from members of Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra on a song inspired by a trip to the Makasutu forest.
