Album Review
Decca
Reviewed 2010-07-22 
Congolese party music with trance overtones. Featuring amplified thumb pianos, bass, and cool call/response vocals. The percussion takes the lead and winds through loping rhythms and high-energy arrangements. I liked every track, play it all.

1. An uptempo wiggle, fun, fiery, lots of style.
2. Upbeat invitation to dance…only 1:59, sadly. Can go right into #3.
3. Fast party, like a carnival Samba but African, fast vocals too.
4. Midtempo at first, then fast and driving. So cool.
5. Whistles and percussion like that carnival sound again, upbeat.
6. Sweet and driving thumb pianos & percussion. Fast energy.
7. Fast and warm w/cool vocals that get into a crazy mbira groove.
8. Midtempo, great duet of mbira & vocals. Relaxed, quiet, cool!
