"I love Hemisphere Records because they do such a great job of picking tracks. I have three of their compilations, and there is not a dud on any of them. But this is my favorite. Not only is there a nice variety of music, from the intensely rhythmic (''Sisinbo'') to the pensive (''Liberia'') to the minimalist (''Ouere Hana''), you can discern how African music influenced American music, and how the Africans have in turn borrowed from us with their own unique twist. The songs are all interesting, and they all bear repeated playing. This is a great introduction to African music, well worth the price. Great job, Hemisphere!"
