Swahili Afropop Dance
05/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard this group blasting from the radio while riding on a bus from Dar es Salaam to Mbeya in Tanzania, East Africa. The album picks up on common Tanzanian social themes that everyone can relate to. Even if you don't know Swahili, the horn section, multiple guitar rythym and harmonizing vocals will engage you. Also available the album "Sungi" regorded in Germany."
Beautiful guitar-based African pop from Tanzania

"Sikinde"
(Africassette Records, 1994)
------------------------------------
Gorgeous 1990s guitar pop from Tanzania, with sleek, sensual vocals and funky rhythms that seem to stretch back to the James Brown idolization of the late '60s Afropop scene, but with a softer modern edge. Mostly, it's the super-duper, super-pretty electric guitar work that's the wow-factor here -- really nice stuff that's the perfect update of the best West African pop of the '70s. Beautiful music; this band may not be very well-known outside of their home, but don't let that stop you from picking this record up. You'll be happy you did. A very gentle, alluring album.
