CD Reviews

Buy one for you and one for your best friend
Claudia Gadelha | Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL | 02/21/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Look guys, I'm Brazilian and I could not understand a word of what they sing (except when I read the English version of the songs on the CD cover) but, the CD is wonderful. Every song is so strong, they get to your heart even if you don't understand the words. You really don't have to speak the Creole language to love songs like "Bay Bondye Glwa", "Zanset Nou Yo", and "Nwel Inosan". Buy one for you and one for your best fried."
Intense, emotive, and very political
Claudia Gadelha | 11/03/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first listened to Kalfou Danjere while living in Haiti and have since heard Boukman Eksperyans perform live in Miami. They really do put to music the essence of the Haitian reality. Their message is right out of the common Haitians' struggle for a life free from political repression. The album is a show case of Haitian drumming and emotive tunes. I consider it a classic of Haitian 'Rasin' (Roots) music. It's an excellent buy if you're looking for modern music from Haiti that blends the essential elements from their culture.Be aware that all the lyrics are in Haitian Creole."
Their best album
Idiosyncrat | California | 04/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one amazing album. I have managed to find copies of all the Boukman Eksperyans studio albums, and while they are all great, this one is certainly at a higher level than the others. The songwriting, arrangments, performances and mixing in this album are top-class. The guitar playing in particular sounds much better (in my opinion) than their later albums."
