Editorial Reviews

Multi-instrumental, multi-lingual, multi-racial -- Afro DZ ak embodies the diversity of 21st century progressive hip-hop. With a trumpet in his left hand and a microphone in his right, Afro DZ ak presents his solo debut Elevation. Based in Boston, Afro DZ ak is part of the next generation of jazz-influenced, socially-conscious MCs. His new album Elevation showcases his diverse talents as a thoughtful, incisive rapper and an experienced, powerful musician. Though reminiscent of old-school Common, Digable Planets or A Tribe Called Quest, Elevation is about much more than looped jazz samples. Layered with live trumpet, saxophone, flute, piano, guitar and bass, Elevation's boom-bap rhythms and dynamic harmonies are a perfect match for Afro DZ ak's politically-progressive lyricism. Like Barack Obama, Afro DZ ak (real name Pete Shungu) was born to a mother from the heartland of America (Kansas) and a father from the heart of Africa (Dem. Rep. of Congo). As a result of his diverse background, Afro DZ ak raps about real problems facing the local and global community around him.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've listened to this cd over and over March 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Pete performing with Adam Payne and other fine musicians outside on a very cold November day at Patriot Place. I was blown away by their sound. Bought this CD from a very nice young woman by the stage. Bet I listened to the album ten times in a row in my car the next week. Love the music and amazed by Pete's message. Brought me back to Gil Scott Heron.
I'm a fifty-six year old graphics guy who grew up in the sixties who likes positive, talented and intelligent musicians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe I like hip-hop after all! November 23, 2008

Rap and hip-hop are a hard sell with me, but this is catchy, clever, and cool. Good stuff!
