Holy Forest is the brainchild of musician and filmmaker Jon Fine. Wearing a number of hats on this record as producer, instrumentalist and songwriter, he enlisted friends and collaborators on this epic genre-blending project. The seeds of the recording sessions, spanning 3 years, were planted on a trip to the Makasutu Forest, a lush, green wilderness of mangrove swamps that line the River Gambia. While there, Fine connected with legendary griot Tata Din Din Jobarteh and the project was born. World renowned Jazz DJ Gilles Peterson has been a huge supporter of the project with heavy rotation of ‘Africa Calling’ on his Radio 6 Music Show and has also included the song on his recent British Airways podcast.
