Album Review
Reviewed 2003-01-08 
Great Afro-jazz exploration for kora, horns, percussion, and voice. Fairly low-key, but nicely played and kind of swinging. The instrumentals are especially good.

*1. Relaxed jazz intro, kora, vocals. Nice.
*2. Cool female vox, sweet jazz accents from band.
3. More upbeat w/a Cuban-influenced percussion & nice sax.
4. Guitar-driven instrumental. Smooth (in a good way).
*5. Nice interplay in this instrumental. Mid-tempo.
6. Slow, rich gospel vocal piece. Sax interlude. Just OK.
7. Upbeat jazz beginning w/list of African nations.
*8. Sweet instrumental w/some nice organ/flute/sax/bass work.
*9. Swinging instrumental w/well-played shifts of instruments.
10. Hip-hop in French & Arabic w/organ/kora/drums.
