Album Review
Reviewed 2006-10-05 
Bright, lyrical koras; warm, sweet guitars, great vocals. All around, a delicious release. Varies from Malian blues to fairly traditional Griot tracks. Lovely stuff all-round.

*1. Sweet, midtempo Senegalise w/great guitar & vox. So good.
2. Midtempo w/high female vox and cool percussion/guitar.
3. Sweet kora, soaring male vox, fem chorus. Midtempo.
*4. Glorious kora duet. Relaxed, expertly played. Instrumetal.
*5. Great male vox backed by strings/perc. Downtempo, powerful.
*6. Sweet, bouncy balafon/guitar, great soaring vocal bits. Chorus.
*7. Ngoni (harp), deep male vox, fem chorus, downtempo & cool.
8. Fem vocals, ngoni, bright, mid/uptempo & joyful.
9. Sweet blend of trad & modern instru. Midtempo, vox, nice..
10. Kora & slack key guitar duet. Male vox, midtempo & bright.
11. Guitar/balafon. Fem & husky male vox duet. Down/midtempo.
*12. Claps, call-response vox/flute/perc midtempo, driving.
