Album Review
Reviewed 2003-04-28 
From the new generation of West African Griot singers, Bambino has a great tenor that combines with traditional (balafon/fula flute) and contemporary instruments, plus a good chorus. The result has touches of jazz/pop/hip-hop/and traditional African.

1. Mid-tempo groove w/catchy percussion.
2. Upbeat dance w/lots of horns, bass, perc.
3. Driving w/horns, funky guitars, big vocals & a child’s voice.
*4. More low key w/sweet vocals.
5. Upbeat w/jazzy touches &nice balafon/horns..
*6. Nice bluesy harmonica, piano. Very cool.
*7. Horn/bass/guitar funk w/nice vocals.
8. Midtempo and bouncy w/strings & flute.
9. Slower & lyrical w/good use of the chorus.
10. French hip-hop & African instruments. Interesting.
*11. James Brown cover in Malinke. Dramatic & cool.
12. Dance-y version of 4. Fun, but a bit slick.
