CD Reviews

Amasong's First CD
Jamie L. Peters | Kansas City, MO | 11/10/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I'm nothing like a professional music reviewer.

I first discovered Amasong while living in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. I volunteered at WEFT as a substitute airshifter. Primarily I filled in for the Monday world music show.

Amasong caught my eye because they were choral AND world music. This meant I could play their second CD, Amai, as a new music selection and I knew what to expect.

This CD is very good but the songs are a bit hard to hear, mostly due to the CD being recorded live in a church.

My favorite tracks are:
14 Dig My Grave Both Long and Narrow
15 Todor Todorka
17 Burial Society Song"
