Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2007-07-07 
Fresh, lively Luo roots music from Kenya. Instruments are orutu (fiddle), nyangile (gong), percussion, horn, flute, vocals. It’s high-energy music with a strong, pulsing beat and a sweet, joyful sound.

*1. Upbeat, catchy, totally infectious. A great intro to their sound.
2. Ululating fiddle, sweet percussion, vox. Upbeat & driving.
*3. Fast perc, fun vox. An upbeat and catchy dance.
4. Scratchy fiddle, call-response vox. Mid/upbeat.
*5. Upbeat w/good percussion/fiddle/vox.
6. Mid/uptempo call-response vox, tripping perc.
*7. A capella intro then a lively, upbeat perc/fiddle jam.
8. A capella intro mostly midtempo & driving.
