CD Reviews

This rare gem is infectiously joyous from beginning to end.
08/16/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I happened upon this at a local library. I grew up on classic rock, and have gone through heavy metal, hip hop, classical, and blues music phases. I was in the mood for something different, and this CD grew on me more and more with each listen. This is party music, pure and simple. Not a lick of English, but it is a fun, up-tempo celebration of life that transcends language. I love to listen to it in the car, while exercising, whatever. If you're a fan of Paul Simon's "Graceland" album, this type of music could have been a major influence. Make sure you pump up the bass on your stereo to get the full effect!"
