I have had all the Baka, Baka Beyond, and Dr. Didg albums since their release and there is no more captivating "new" sound than this. (Matter of fact, I am listening to the "Baka Playlist" for the umpteen zillionth time as I write this!) First off, it is a brilliant stroke of creative genius to bring the indigenous peoples' music to the fore. It resulted in a wonderful mix of instruments and vocals. You won't believe the depth of their musical talent (remember, too, there are loads of them involved) and the beat is infectious, plain and simple. What a great time these guys must have had in Cameroon doing this. And hats off to them for sharing the very best of it with you and me!
Buy all their albums (and do not overlook the Dr. Didg [Didgeridoo player from Baka] album, Out of the Woods, another EXCELLENT, out of the ordinary, spin-off effort). If these albums all went out of print tomorrow, I'll guarantee there isn't a single owner that would sell his or her collection for 10X what they paid for it, this music is that special!
For those of you that don't already know about it, you might also try and find the old Mick Fleetwood album that he did years ago with a similar group of natives (mostly kids) in Ghana. Great stuff, the album-jacket photo of the kids drumming is worth the price alone!
One reviewer advises that you give this music as Christmas gifts. Great advice, ABSOLUTELY! The repeating gift: best investment in longterm friendship you can make!

I didn't like this one as much as "Dance the Devil Away", but it is still a very good CD. I just liked the spirit in "Dance the Devil Away" more than this one. The didg and guitar work are outstanding on both albums-the later "solo" material by these two wasn't nearly as good as the magic Outback captured.

I listen to this disk ALL the TIME! It never tires, never gets old. Very basic: GREAT acoustic guitar work and some of the best didg playing I've ever heard (listen to track 3!). Kick in some percussion and melodica on a few tunes and...OH BOY! I wish the two founders (now Dr. Didg and Baka beyond) would regroup...this disk was them at their strongest.

If you like, say, Tortoise, or Rusted Root, or, say, any other kind of music I can think of, you'll like Outback. Two of my favorite CDs are Baka and Dance the Devil Away (their second and last album). This music just sounds pure, somehow. Too bad they broke up :(
They make guitar made for the digeridoo, and vice versa. Interesting, considering they came from opposite sides of the globe! (virtually, anyway)
Try it -- you'll like it.

My favorite recording of all time! But it, listen to it, and thank me later! (trust me!). Sadly their solo efforts (Baka beyond and Dr Didg) don't even come CLOSE to their debut effort.

This CD is a joy to listen to. I drive 40mi interstate highway (1 way) and find this to be my most played CD. It is also great to have playing while you study calculus (I don't know why) it just helps to get an 'A'.

If you like a laid-back sound consisting of mixtures of different instruments from around the world then you'll love this cd and there follow-up Dance the Devil Away.

This album has such a great feel. Very upbeat and fresh, yet mellow enough for late evening listening. Memories of driving from Anchorage to Fairbanks in late summer before the first frost. While I am fond of both their albums, I am partial to this one. Baka feels more fun and lively than their second album. But they are both very excellent albums and make a nice pair of acoustic albums. (Actually, they are great to listen to anytime, not only for road trips. But you'll probably figure that out on you own...)
