Beauty for the Ear
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unfamiliar with African music, unsure about a CD in a language you don't understand? Go ahead and try this anyway! This cd was the disc that forced me to go out and get a player oh so many years ago. It is absolutely beautiful, and lyric without the need to understand the words of the songs (how I wish that I did!). I'm afraid I do not know how traditional Samite is considered to be, or how original. Either way however, to my western ear his sound is well rooted in the richness of experience. Sweet, sad, soothing or joyous, it is never cloying or irritating. Although it is not a boisterous CD, rather soft really, I find that I can not use it as background noise because it always quitely draws my attention. Good music for weaving or potting plants, but not writing letters! This CD accomplishes a universality that I suspect many new age artists are seeking, but utterly without that awful vague formlessness or aimlessness that tends to pass for ephemeral in more consciously intellectual musical expressions. Highly recommended! (by me at least!)"
One of my lifetime top ten favorites.

"Happy, soothing, uplifting, makes you want to dance. Fresh, genuine, charming and unpretentious. I take it with me on otherwise annoying business trips, listen to it in city traffic, while doing errands, etc."
