CD Reviews

A Delightful Collection of Songs!
M. Lee | Santa Monica, CA | 02/16/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a wonderful CD and a great one to add to your collection, regardless of whether or not you are a big fan of African music. The songs are all uplifting and joyful. This album aslo contradicts the stereotypical style of African drumming music that many think of when picturing what African music sounds like. The songs on here are melodic and use different types of instruments in addition to great vocals and harmonies."
UP LIFTING MUSIC TO MAKE YOUR DAY

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Any time I feel a little down with every day life struggle, I just put this CD on to dance away my worries and sadness. And I hope you will feel the same way too if you are an open minded soul to the magic of world music, especially this one. "SALUTE TO HIGHLIFE PIONNERS" BRAVO to all the musicians involved."
