CD Reviews

Sumptuous Melodies

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I stumbled onto this band years ago and was blown away by their sound. It's an upbeat blend of the Cuban "son" rhythm with the traditional Wolof and Mandinka melodies. I honestly don't think I have ever heard anything so incredible.It's one of my Top Ten CD's - of all time. I have to disagree with the reviewer who thought this CD was an inferior Baobob album. Yeah, it's true that the "Pirate's Choice" CD is their best, but it's hard to find (that's why I chose to review this one; you can find it at ANY. . . store). That said, this CD is STILL an epiphany!"
An all-time great

"How a Baobab fan could give this CD less than a 5 is completely beyond me. Indeed, Pirates Choice is a once in a lifetime gem, eerie in its floating beauty, but Bamba is different and to me just as incredibly wonderful in its own way: lively, joyous, maybe ecstatic is the best way to put it. Get it while you still can, you won't be sorry."

"that's about how long it took me to get hooked on this band. i know that pirate's choice is the "best", but this cd is seriously just my darn favorite. the title track makes me want to burst right out of my skin, it's THAT kind of powerful. every single time i play this cd at work (a retail travel store) people ask about it. enough said - just buy it already."
