about

Africa to Appalachia is a boundary-crossing musical collaboration with griot singer Mansa Sissoko that explores the banjo’s African roots and Stone’s adventures in Mali.

2009 Juno Award winner for World Music Album of the Year
2009 Canadian Folk Music Award winner

"That rare example of a musical exploration going perfectly, a cultural summit that sounds vibrant and seamless for all the right reasons."
EXCLAIM!

"Juno-winning banjoist Jayme Stone is back with Africa To Appalachia, a West African-inspired mix of original and traditional gems that highlights his ear for winning melodies and curiosity about under-studied sounds."
NOW MAGAZINE

"There’s something utterly enchanting about this collaboration. The whole thing just seems completely at ease with itself; a real joy to listen to."
SONGLINES

"Stone combines a jazz musician's sense of timing and sureness of touch with a pop musician's brevity and directness."
THE GUARDIAN

"A deftly arranged collaboration of seemingly effortless ease. A confidently delivered, finely judged album with no boundary-crossing joins showing."
fROOTS

"Entrancing and educational, a polyrhythmic tale of two continents."
