CD Reviews

Great Afro worldbeat
LGwriter | Astoria, N.Y. United States | 11/12/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The mix of Foday Musa Suso's kora, Bill Laswell's bass, and Jeff Bova's keyboards here offers an unbeatable combination and, along with Hector Zazou's two albums, Noir et Blanc and Guilty, stands as one of the great earlier worldbeat albums based on African music.Suso also plays djembe (talking drum) and sings, and wrote all compositions on the album. While it is short, clocking at under 36 minutes, there isn't one wasted note. Suso and Laswell co-produced this gem, and it was engineered by Laswell's familiar co-conspirators, Robert Musso and Martin Bisi, who know exactly how to set the right sound levels of the various individual components for maximum enjoyment.A real treat for all you worldbeat fanatics out there!"
