5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting January 24, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Voice Transcendant September 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERBLY SOOTHING March 28, 2010
By K.K.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It never gets old March 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
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.

Beautiful tunes of this CD are reaching into my soul and stirring something primordial. I love it but my husband finds it irritating. Please, listen to the samples.

Great but still not what I want. Maybe that doesn't exist anymore. In the past I heard a capella African voices singing native songs and that captured my heart. Read more
