It has become one of my favorites.
Sistren Berhane
I would highly recommend this cd to anyone that is tired of "carbon copy" music that is played over & over on the radio.

This is a very relaxing and at the same time uplifting music.

I heard this CD when visiting Bogota. I walked into a gallery of the local artists and the music captured my soul. I was so moved by the melodies, I had to find out the title of the CD. The music is transcendent. My favorites are Kothbiro, Ondiek and Sutu Kun, and the invigorating, rythmic Ekbobo. But the best has to be the Wasuze Otya track with the laughter of the singers at the end of the track; you can sense their joy in their songs. The music is so uplifting and premeates with a positive feeling -- you can tell that the singers feel joy in living, and in life through the range of wonderful music; you want to go to their land, and be in their space. Wonderful!!! A must have!!!

Only a listen to this incredible and sublime collection with convince noise-weary ears and world-heavy souls of the healing power of the human voice.

I would love to hear a collection of this type which featured the voices of African women like Angelique Kidjo and Miriam Makeba.

Get it. You'll revisit it over and over.

THIS IS SIMPLY A TERRIFIC RECORDING. THERE IS NOT A LAME TRACK ON IT. THE HARMONIOUS VOICES AND GENTLE INSTRUMENTS COMBINE TO JUST TRANSPORT YOU TO A BETTER PLACE. A PERFECT DE-STRESSER AFTER A HARD DAY AT WORK, OR WHEN CAUGHT IN SLOW TRAFFIC, OR TO PLAY ON THE WAY HOME FROM A NOT-SO-GREAT-FAMILY VISIT! THE RYTHMS ARE SEDUCTIVE AND THE VOICES ARE BEAUTIFUL. AFTER BUYING THIS RECORDING, I ONLY WANTED MORE. I CONSIDER THIS ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE TOP 10 ALBUMS.

I've had this CD for probably 15 years. It gets lost in my clutter every so often, and when it returns it's like having a favorite friend in the house again. Relaxing, but with spirit, melody and rhythm.

I find this to be a very nice CD to listen to, when I'm in the right mood. It's a very soothing addition to my otherwise hectic and crazy life.
