Codona was Don Cherry (trumpet, flute, melodica and more), Nana Vasconcelos (percussion and more) and Colin Walcott (sitar, tabla and more). They had three albums out in 1979, 1981 and 1983, and they are now collected in an ECM box ("The Codona Trilogy", 2008). You get so much great music here, most of it composed by Walcott, Cherry, and Ornette Coleman. I guess it's jazz and "world music" (if you buy that description) and even the sounds of the rain forest. Check out this trio!
The videos are recorded in New York in 1984.
