Exploring his roots??

"Geoffrey Oryema is a relatively new artist for me. I became a fan of his work from a music sampler (song was Market Day- another album). I bought 3 of his albums, this being the last...I was not disappointed. I found this album a bit different from Night to Night and Beat The Border, meaning it had some more "traditional sounding" stuff on it. By that I mean stuff I deem as more traditional African music via beat and style. Not bad, but not what I love about G. I fell in love with the somber low voice of Geoffrey, and this album continues that style. I am glad I found him as an artist, and this album continues to solidify him as a wonderful and powerful singer. Simple can be better! If you have any of his albums and want more this is a great addition to your collection."
