Incredible
Robert L. Neblett | 02/22/2002

"After seeing the Broadway musical "Sarafina", I was deeply moved. It has to have been the best broadway show I have seen. I am still moved to tears when I listen to the cd and reminisce about the actual performance. I wish they could do a revival of this musical. The motion picture has nothing on the musical. I recommend this cd to anyone who loves international music and wants to understand the struggle that South Africans went through during their fight against Apartheid. The cd is not just music but it is the actual play on cd."

"The soundtrack Sarafina is absolutely worth all of the money in the world. It allows you to hear the hearts of many who suffered in Africa and it reaches to the heart. The music takes you to Africa and no words can describe the value of the music. This cd is guaranteed to be worth all of your money and them some!"
Stunning, Important Work of Political Musical Theatre

"SARAFINA is a reminder of the struggles of black South Africans under the reign of apartheid. This musical came to America in 1987, 5 years prior to the abolition of this tradition of legalized racial segregation. The music by Hugh Masekela and performed by real South African student actors is inspiring, fresh, and will change your perceptions of the power of musical theatre. Sung half in native Zulu/Xhosa and half in English, and accompanied by traditional South African rhythms akin to Ladysmith Black Mambazo (a musical force of their own, but most known to Americans by their performance on Paul Simon's GRACELAND album), this story of student protestors in a township school is humorous, chilling, and will set your feet to tapping. It's a true celebration of the human spirit, and the fact that it is inspired by so much suffering is even more astonishing."
