For his new album, Canadian flamenco guitar virtuoso Jesse Cook wanted to reflect on the different places and cultures he’s experienced as a musician. The result is One World.

“Over the years, I’ve taken my music and tried to cross-pollinate it with music from different parts of the world,” the Juno-Award-winning musician says in a press note to accompany the album. “For the (2003) album Nomad, I went to Cairo and recorded with musicians there. On my (2009) record The Rumba Foundation, I went to Colombia, and worked with musicians from Cuba as well. On (1998’s) Vertigo, I went down to Lafayette, La., and recorded with Buckwheat Zydeco. For me, the question has always been: Where did you go? Where did you take your guitar?”

That reflection, however, brought him to a new conclusion: that “it’s not really about going someplace.” Hence One World, Cook’s most diverse album to date that explores the idea that everything is connected. It’s why sitars blend with synths, electronic and acoustic textures become one, all while Cook’s guitar anchors it at the centre.

“The Constantinople of sound,” he says, making comparisons to the ancient city where Eastern and Western culture famously meet. For a musician whose built a career off travelling the globe and soaking in the sounds and cultures, it seems like the most logical place to end up.
