Format: Audio CD
Having purchased and listened to many, many cd's on African and Afro-centric music this one rates right down the middle. While not electrifying (as some are) this gives you a middle of the road. text-book overview of "tribal music" in Africa. I have found on many of this type of compilation that many of the titles are mediocre at best. I would highly recommend the cd, "Africa; Music of a Continent" that accompanied a African Arts show in London. I would also like to see more liner notes on the tribes themselves w/ their histories, i.e. The Griot of West Africa. All in all $4.00 + shipping is pretty much a bargain, especially if you will be using this for a classroom.

Format: MP3 Music
First of all, this same music is available for a dollar cheaper on Amazon (Laserlight: "African Tribal Music and Dances"--but you have to search for "Conga Groove Band" (!) to find the MP3s). I haven't compared the sound quality between these two cheapo releases. Second, it's not an overview of African "tribal" music; it's the recordings Gilbert Rouget made in 1952 Guinea (Malinké people) and Ivory Coast (Baule people), plus a record made by Sonar Senghor (Leopold's nephew) and his national Senegalese dance troupe. It is depressing to see how these recordings are mindlessly repackaged. That said, the Malinké/Baulé tracks are must-haves. Four different Mande harps are heard: kora on the "Hymn of Praise," the rarer soron on "Solo for the seron," and two bolon hunters' harps on "Dance of the Hunters." The "Duet for Flutes" is a great performance.

I bought this as a Christmas gift for a friend. Of course, I previewed it not knowing what to expect. The music seems very indigenous and the beats are quite catchy. It is great to listen to.

Wonderful music. The primitive yet refined rhythms touch the very soul. Unkindled fires light as you hear the earthy drums and enchanting voices of Africa. Well worth a listen!
