Reviewed 2015-11-03 
Songs in West African languages accompanied by wonderful acoustic guitar arrangements, vocals, folk instruments, percussion. All have vocals; all are good to play

No FCC's

1.Woyoyoe –2:34 – ”A Cry” – a tale of love in his childhood city in Mauritania, mellow

2.Amonafi – 2:57--”Once Upon A Time” – story of coming of slavery

3.Kiba –3:49-- African diaspora

4.Oma- 2:36 –inspired by Romanian woman Toure met in Paris – faster, more layered; vocal percussion

6.Little Song – 3:06 – steady, low key beat under vocals;

7. If You – 2:25 – whistle type instrument plus percussion, more staccato; lively

8. Khone -2:40 – “Enemy – written by Toure's father; a capella excerpt from opera about black power – nice harmony; call and response
