Boddhi Satva’s Invocation has been ten years in the making and it certainly shows. It is a varied collection of accomplished songs, all, impressively, produced from the confines of Satva’s home. There’s a bit of Reggae (Enemies and Jah Sanctuary), House (Who Am I) and RnB (Because I Know) on there, but if pressed to choose, we enjoyed the African sounds the most.
