I would not classify this as easy listening, more international - tribal. Lots of trance like precussions (fun listening), make you want to free-style dance. Great to let loose of your inner primal joy and just move with the music.

CD Reviews

Nice CD indeed
Thierry Robelin | Italy, EU | 08/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I guess this would be classified as new age music.
The CD is entertaining and yet relaxing; I enjoy listening to it while driving because I find it neither tiring nor boring, even when cycling it through two or three times.
Strangely, I did not get particularly excited when i first listened to it. I simply found it a 'nice' album. I give it five stars because I realize now that time did not consume my enjoyment of it: I have owned this album for over two years and I still listen to it regularly. It has not only become one of my classics, but it's also one of my favorite albums."
Jabula, Great listening.

"My copy of Jabula was purchased at Disney's Animal Kingdom, also. What a great find. All the tracks are fascinating listening and even mesmerizing at times. I had to order several other Hennie Bekker CDs from Amazon. You will appreciate the aliveness and beauty created here. It's the best souvenir from The Kingdom."
