Album Review

Reviewed 2011-08-11 
Is little Hortensia keeping you up at night with her crying? This will settle her (and you) right down. Sweetly warm and gentle music performed by stellar artists from all around the planet. Not necessarily lullabies, just relaxed and delicious music. Disc 2 is all by Black Umfolosi 5, a wonderful band from Zimbabwe with Ladysmith-like vocals & a capella greatness. All great, especially these:

1. Sweet and lazy Cuban jazz w/wonderful female vocals.
2. Warm and sunny Polynesian ode w/strings & sweet vocal harmony.
3. Kora & guitar instrumental from 2 African superstars.
4. Fun & catchy Cajun tune, but not a lullaby. Hortensia just woke up.
7. Vaguely dark & dramatic folk from Corsica.
10. Nasally female vox, dark and passionate Italian folk.
11. Traditional Malagasy lullaby w/strings, vocals, bird calls.
12. Delicious Afro/Columbian midtempo song of a mermaid. So cool!
14. Warm & sadly sweet Celtic ballad. Warm and clear female vocals.
CD 2 Reviewed inside

CD2: Can’t go wrong w/any track, especially:
1. Delicious, relaxed, amazing vocal harmonies. Holy cats!
3. In English, about a selfish friend. Sweet, lazy.
4. A great sampling of their tight harmonies and wonderful arrangements.
6. An English gospel track.
7. Sweetly melodic.
9. Clicks and that delicious call-response sound.
