Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Often called the Birthplace of Humanity, it is no surprise that the African continent is home to a vast, rich musical tradition whose influence is paramount worldwide. A journey through Africa will introduce you to the mbira (thumb piano), the kora (West African harp-lute) and of course its myriad drums, shakers and percussion instruments. From the tradition of the ancient griots to the choral tradition of the southern African gospel singers and the folk songs of the Ugandan Nile, this collection highlights Sub-Saharan African music in its traditional and contemporary forms.
Liner Note Authors: Diz Heller; Chris Tomsett.
