INTRO: Kevin hays, piano, voiceLionel loueke, guitar, voice The idea of “hope” serves as both the namesake for the duo collaboration of acclaimed musicians Kevin Hays (piano) and Lionel Loueke (guitar), and as the title of their record (Hope, Newvelle Records). Born and raised on opposite sides of the Atlantic - Loueke in West Africa’s Benin, Hays in Connecticut, USA - Hope simultaneously explores their cultural influences, and transcends their differences, complementing each other into a singular, organic voice. Possessing an undeniable chemistry, the duo’s synchronous interplay is both playful and poignant, with a resolute lyricism and warmth.
