Review: Afro-Cuban world fusion from an all-female band. This album finds Miss Bunnett at the top of her game. Whether she is playing the flute or the soprano saxophone her voice is one of an artist in sublime form. This latest disc is also a fine example of how the members of the group have managed to weave their soulful vocals into the viscerally exciting Afro-Cuban rhythms for which they have become a haloed musical entity today.
