Format: Audio CD
This is a wonderful CD. I listen to it frequently at work. The artists are all African women from various parts of the continent and the range in their style and music reflects the vast differences between the regions. This album is very well put together. If you want an introduction to African musicians or just want to listen to beautiful and inspiring music, this CD is a great place to start.
