CD Reviews

Good music featuring Babatunde Olatunji
Dan Engebretson | St. Paul, MN USA | 04/18/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I would have given this a five star but a lot of the songs fade out long before they are done. It has a good selection of different types of tribal music on it, vocal, percussion, string, etc. The main reason I like it is because tracks 2,3, and 14-20 feature Babatunde Olatunji on them. This is rarely heard Baba music, especially to those who are only familier with his "Drums Of Passion" recordings. The quality of some of the recordings are not great, but I've heard much worse. The CD case also states that this was recorded in Africa. I'm not sure of the non-Baba tracks but the ones featuring him were recorded at Columbia studios in New York. For the price, I believe this CD is worth it."
Good ethnic music
Chris Bornhauser | USA | 06/14/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was interested in expanding my ethnic music and I found this CD to be a good addition to my little collection. I would recommend this CD to anyone who is interested in African music and wants to get somewhat of a musical perspective of their culture."
