Review

Martina, Africando's sixth studio album, continues the group's unique take on African and classic Cuban styles. The group hasn't dropped a beat and this album is a testimony to its staying power. This is helped by a continual injection of new talent built on a solid foundation of some of the best African, Latin, and Antillean musicians performing in the business. The album is a tribute to the eternal African woman and it's a potent homage that churns up the African-Latin musical waters quite a bit. Ismaël Lo's Lote Lô is a finely crafted ballad to a recently deceased friend. His voice brings another dimension to this already talent-packed super group. Congolese legends, Nyboma and Emeneya stir it up on Papa Wemba's Reference. The inimitable Gnonnas Pedro of Benin recreates his Azo Nkplon from the 1970s with gusto to spare. Tabou Combo's Shoubou turns in a fine mid-tempo exhortation to all the youth of the world. Senegal's Seka pushes it higher with his Dioumte replete with fiery keyboard work. A better tribute to Mama Africa would be difficult to find. Africando does it with an enormously gifted cast of musicians. At one time or another, there are over 45 musicians on Martina and there's no stopping them. This is highly recommended.

More good stuff from Africando. Temedi is the slammer on this CD and runs hard from start to finish. Several other good tracks as well, all backed by some of NY's finest musicians.
There's a crazy array of languages - 8 total for 11 tracks, including Spanish, Wolof, and Haitian Creole, to name a few. Makes for a unique salsa listening experience when you're used to understanding what's being said. With this Cd you better get the liner notes if you wanna know what they're singing about!
Not my favorite release from Africando, but unique, quality cuts with a great band, as always!
