Synopsis

Amazon.com
A delight from beginning to end, this is Sally Nyolo's second solo outing since leaving Zap Mama. Originally from Cameroon, Sally Nyolo's music is rooted in the Bikutsi rhythms of her childhood and has spread to encompass a wide variety of global influences. The music ranges from rollicking Cameroonian dance numbers to atmospheric textural vocal evocations of the forest at night. Nyolo has a rich supple voice, at times soft and sultry, at others playfully swooping into Pygmie style yodels. She is a talented percussionist who works with her band to create complex subtle rhythmic textures using acoustic instruments. Nyolo sings in her native Eton language and a variety of others including French and English, and covers a number of topics including environmental spirituality, solidarity in the face of racism, and a tribute to Japanese reggae. Full translations of her songs are included in the booklet. --Jeff Grubb
