ANother Great Album from Brenda

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is unfortunate that Brenda Left the world young, because we have no idea what she might have contributed... But her contributions in her short career were many and this album is an excellent example.
Brenda's rhythms and beats really capture the spirit of Urban Africa. It's highly dancable and energizing to listen to. For anyone who has spent time in Africa, the music pulls at the heart and creates an inexplicable nostalgia for the place.
This album contains many nice rhythms and also the adaptation of a traditional chant in honor of Madela. It's a great introduction to African music that is being listened to by today's modern African people."
