Album Remarks & Appraisals:

"Black Box" is a beautiful musical journey dedicated to all the different shades of the blues. From the work songs of black prisoners recorded by Alan Lomax in the 1930's to the saudade of the great Angolan singer Bonga, the entire planet is singing all the different shades of blues through Repac's machines.

Songlines (UK)
Most surprising perhaps is 'La Fuerza del Sentimiento', in which subtle accompaniment beautifully supports Peruvian Guillermo ArTvalo Valera's shamanic chanting or 'Slepa Ljubav,' which samples Serbian Stana Selimovic's haunting Balkan melodies over blues guitar. Swing Swing, Black Box is still an exceptional album that is able to offer a contemporary take on the blues and its relatives without compromising the music's original soul and beauty.
