5.0 out of 5 stars A dynamic CD!, February 17, 2001
This review is from: The Kwanzaa Album (Audio CD)
This album is the premier authentic collection of music inspired by and based upon the ideals, stories and history of Kwanzaa. In addition to a wide range of instrumental pieces, the album features eight specifically chosen vocal performances, ranging from traditional African songs to contemporary composed pieces. A standout for me is "Mya Si Grei", a traditional song which originated in Guyana, sung by enslaved Africans and passed down to their children. The lyrics roughly translate into "Even though we are here in these terrible conditoins, we are still the same proud, noble people we always were." I also enjoyed Jody Gray's a capella arrangement of "Lift Every Voice" performed with the Free Voices of Praise Choir. This is a dynamic, beautiful CD, one I highly recommend to celebrate Black History any time of year.

What a great collection of music to share with children during Black History Month! (Not to mention during the holiday season.) My elementary students loved listening to the music and learning about Africa. Thanks for selling this album!

By A Customer
This review is from: The Kwanzaa Album (Audio CD)
Women of the Calabash are simply magic. Their harmony and voices are among the most beautiful sounds I've ever heard. It's easy to lose yourself in their music and messages. A must have for any music collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Kwanzaa Album ---, June 14, 2013

Amazonia (Los Angeles, CA---USA) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The Kwanzaa Album (Audio CD)
We ordered this Album to support musical background for combination holiday parties and try to honor the many invited guests from various backgrounds and ancestries and traditional holiday celebrations, as many holidays really are closely assembled on the calendars of time, and we find many of our friends find it way to much to attempt to have separate honoring parties for each holiday and much prefer combination gatherings, so this Album was played along with many other Albums from various cultures for many holidays, and most of them were purchased through our favorite Amazon, and all of the guests attending these combination celebrations really enjoyed the mix of music and traditions and no one to our awareness had any complaining comments. All of the music seemed to be win-win situations. So, thank you, Amazon, for making wide selections available. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time together and your music. Blessings.
