CD Reviews

Fun, sometimes funny, Afro-pop
Clayton W. Hibbert | Seattle, WA, USA | 08/21/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you enjoy the music of other Afro-pop stars that have risen to popularity lately (i.e., Baaba Maal, Youssou N'Dour), you'll enjoy Papa Wemba.This disc is a popsy blend of African rhythms, guitars, and wailing vocals, and the charisma and style of Papa Wemba is infectious and entertaining. Just don't expect anything too deep from this album."
Emotion-by Papa Wemba

"I love African and South American music. I cannot find these kinds of music in my country but on my travels, I try to find them through music shops, festivals and through Amazon or Putumayo and other organisations promote world music. Of all my collection of African music, "Emotion" is a beautiful, touching and heart rending rythm of modern, contemporary African music. My children (one is two and the other five years old) and I love to listen and dance to this CD. When I am alone, I play it and watch the sun sets over my balcony."
Charming, Accessible, and if this doesn't make you wanna dan

"then you must have forgotten how to!

This was my first album from Papa Wemba and even though a listen to his other works makes one think this is kind of a distillation of more variety-- what's extracted is still pretty pure to ear and pretty likeable to the feet.

The songs here are so polished you will think you have heard them somewhere before on the first listen... and that will make you think that there might be some higher plane of music that we all have access to on a subconscious level but that few of us can play in the studio. Papa Wemba can."
