    My husband was a Peace Corps volunteer in Sierra Leone and described the CD as music he heard throughout the country but with different distressing topics.great music.We are enjoying it.May it help them to heal.

    5-0 out of 5 stars it's just boss
    beyond the human interest story and incredible hardship these guys and others in their country suffered, the music is borne out of a real struggle. if you think about most great music, there was strife and difficulty around to create the inspiration...
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Sound!
    This album not only has a great sound, but it is the vehicle for telling a story that is important for us all to hear and remember....and do something about.While enjoying the fulfilling sounds of these soulful and rhythmic voices,it is important to hear their message.A celebration of the spirit...well done! ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars In passing he gave us his best.!
    Ali Farke Toure is to African music and blues what The Beatles are to Rock and Roll, what Mario Lanza is to Opera (sorry pavarotti), what Vicente Fernandez is to mexico. I love his music and have almost all his albums. I have read many opinions wherin people mention what album or albums(s) are his best. I will tell this, as amazing as some of his previous works are, none are better than this! If you like or love anything Ali Farke Toure has ever done, you need this disc.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Farewell, Brave Friend
    One of the incredible tragedies in Music this year is the passing of Ali Farka Toure. It is impossible to exagerate his importance to African, Malian, Blues, World musics. He is as seminal figure as anyone in any discipline. Last year he recorded the mystically beautiful IN THE HEART OF THE MOONwith Toumani Diabete, and this record as well as Diabete's magical SYMMETRY ORCHESTRA recording just out were recorded nearly simultaneously in the same hotel as the MOON sessions.
    5-0 out of 5 stars More than a summation of a career
    I agree with the earlier reviewers' 5-star ratings, but for slightly different reasons.Especially if one compares it to Niafunke (1999), Toure's "back to his roots" album, Savane both retains the earlier album's live, desert-dry quality and pushes these centuries-old song structures in intriguing new directions--but doing so without altering those structures.Certain songs, such as "Erdi" and "Ledi Coumbe," sound as though they could be a staking out of new possibilities for Malian music while remaining true to its firm, resiliant foundations.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magical, multi-faceted global journey.
    True to its intriguing and provocative title, Lee Ritenour's latest CD "Smoke 'N' Mirrors" takes listeners on a magical, multi-faceted global journey unlike any other in the legendary guitarist's three decade, nearly 40 album career.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Lee in 2006
    I've been listening to Lee Ritenour since the early 80's and love most everything he has done. This CD brings back some memories of older days which frankly I prefer and the sound quality is amazing. Several of the songs are dashboard banging upbeat tunes that are very unique, uplifting and infectous. Highly recomend. My only question to Lee is when are you going to tour again??

    4-0 out of 5 stars Smoke`n`mirrors
    Well, pretty good album, but for a long time Rit fan there are a better ones! The last song on the album reminds me of an old GRP sound, but for me there is always a question of (modern) production... For instance, I am very pleased to hear Fender Rhodes keyboard on a few songs, but this modern drum production sounds so shallow and therefore the whole song sound (the songs are great) is shallow too! Anyway, a solid 4! ... Read more

    As if this CD needed another 5 star review. I guess the main question I had going into this was - will Pink Floyd and Reggae actually work together? I like both although I've been around long enough that Dark Side Of The Moon has lost a lot of it's initial thrill. Familiarity with music you like does provide a kind of comfort zone but let's face it... after 30+ years that familiarity can put you to sleep. Well gang, it's wake up time. This CD puts a whole new light on The Dark Side. Just seconds into it I had a smile on my face. It's that good.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Fusion of Pink Floyd and Reggae Music
    As most of the reviewers, I have listened Dark Side of the Moon probably hundreds of times.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Everything a tribute album should be
    Reggae collective Easy Star All Stars paid homage to Pink Floyd and their artistic triumph, Dark Side Of The Moon, with this album, which was cheekily titled Dub Side Of The Moon.

    Editorial Review

    This flowingly well-sequenced collection of semi-acoustic tracks, some of which have a smoothly mainstream FM-radio feeling while others are more roots-oriented, is just the thing to unwind after a stressful workday or get the weekend off to an effervescent yet relaxed start. South African troubadour Vusi Mahlasela and Senegalese pop icon Diogal are heard to great effect, as are Congolese stars Faya Tess and Lokua Kanza, entwined in a lusciously Cuban-rumba-influenced duet. A lesser-known Cape Verdean songstress named Gabriela Mendes swings her way through a typically dance-like ditty and Dobet Gnahoré of Ivory Coast makes a similarly strong impression. A previously unreleased tune by Angelique Kidjo of Benin rounds the set out; every compilation should ideally offer something new, not just retreads, so this is definitely a good thing. Another important selling point: a portion of the proceeds from this album will be donated to Mercy Corps in support of their efforts to help victims of AIDS and the civil war in Darfur, and to Oxfam America and Oxfam Novib's "Make Trade Fair."

    5-0 out of 5 stars traditional - modern - symmetry
    Three principles that make up the philosophy of the music created by the symmetric orchestra.The mix of Boulevard is the definition of symmetry, no instrument out weighs the other, perfect balance is achieved.It is strange that Toumani Diabate has the ability to create original music, whether it is traditional or modern.Boulevard de L'Independance is one of the most unique original music creations this world will ever hear.Check out the songs Tapha Niang, Mali Sadio and Mamadou Diaby,,, GROOVES, GROOVES and MORE Grooves...If you are the kind of music collector that searches for original material YOU MUST LISTEN TO 'THE SYMMETRIC'.The songs Single and Toumani are also great songs which combine modern and traditional.While many of Diabate's other collaborations are also creative genius, (Songhai 1&2, New Ancient Strings, Kulanjan, In The Heart of The Moon & Mali Cool.) Boulevard de l'Independance reaches musical nirvana, due in part to the efforts of the over 40 musicians that participated on the CD.Boulevard should be considered for the GRAMMY AWARD 2007, listen to it and tell me I am wrong..

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great
    This is not the toumani I've been listening to this is a whole world of great music in one Cd. If you like world music with an African slant and you know and love Toumani and Ali Farka buy this you'll be glad you did.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Toumani Diabate Symmetric Orchestra
    The last album that had this kind of quality and energy was Orchestra Baobab's Specialist in all Styles. The difference here comes from the way the producers and musicians have been able to compress a music with so much dynamism while retaining the live essence of the recording session.

    Editorial Review

    Ali Farka Toure fans expecting to hear another fiery electric blues effort from the African John Lee Hooker are in for a big surprise. Toure's first album after a six- year hiatus is mostly an acoustic duo with kora master Toumani Diabate that draws upon Malian and Guinean folk style from the 1950s and '60s called Jamana Kura, which grew out of the Mande griot music tradition. Both musicians were children at the time this music was popularized and a yearning sentimentality flavors many of the songs, particularly "Hawa Dolo," one of three Toure tunes rerecorded here in that older style. Other surprises abound as well: there are only two vocal tracks from the deep-voice Toure, and much of the soloing is actually handled by the flittering Diabate. Minus a few overdubs by guests like Ry Cooder, the music here were first takes from a jam session in which the two musicians would improvising over the basic structures. Nonetheless, this loose approach matched with the stunning beauty of the playing makes it a treasure worth holding on to. --Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Heart of the Matter
    As the late, great Ali Farka Touré says in the sleeve notes to In the Heart of the Moon, `If you know something and don't want to share it, then you are selfish.' Ali would then appreciate the fact that I am unreservedly recommending one of the last records he recorded before his untimely demise. Here you will find Ali on guitar along with king of the kora, Toumani Diabeté, playing west African melodies that will make the hairs on the back of your neck tingle. Two masters at the top of their form.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Something special.
    I have been listening to a lot of 'world music' lately and while I have heard a lot of great stuff nothing matches the beauty of this. It bears many repeated listenings and its mystery and charm cannot be worn out. I suggest that if you have had a tough day this music will sooth the frazzled edges without ever sinking to the banalities of designed 'mood music'.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful masterwork
    I don't speak any of the languages on this CD.....but the music speaks to all races and people in its sheer beauty....sounds corny....but its true....I LOVE this CD.One of the final master works from Ali.........check out the new release Savana (and see my review!) ... Read more

    Distinctly West African in its light charm.But great variation across tracks, almost as though produced by a collective with lots of room for different people to lead.Typically transparently layered with varying mixes of polyrhythms, harder Western grooves, and many different special effects.The influence of rap and reggae is apparent throughout.Sung mainly in clear French, but in African languages, too.General mood is happy and light.But stories about politics and society weave throughout like a kind of reporting.Children pop everywhere in many guises.Not at all what I expected (something closer to Afrobeat) from all the hype. ...

    Editorial Review

    For his fourth solo album, the Cameroon-born bassist/multi-instrumentalist/singer-composer extraordinaire has assembled a crew of seasoned players from various walks of life. These range from Americans like jazz guitarist Mike Stern and triple-Grammy-winning neo-R&B star John Legend to stars from the international firmament, such as guitarist Toninho Horta (ex-Milton Nascimento) and singer-composer Djavan from Brazil and Susheela Raman, a UK-based chanteuse/torch goddess who employs Indian and other influences in her work. The resulting 15 tracks, while certainly incorporating a mélange of influences and couched in decidedly mainstream, soft-jazz production values, nonetheless neatly evade the dreaded "F word" (fusion) -- a term used as a pejorative by certain diehard world music mavens. Known as the "African Sting,"Bona comes across as a sunny, soft-spoken presence, with a gently mellifluous tenor, wicked chops and an undeniable ear for a hook. Deferential yet assertive, rootsy yet cosmopolitan, he pursues the African Diaspora to South America, the Caribbean and the USA, blending each local sound with lessons gleaned from his own cultural birthright and later travels. --Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Stellar Cameroonian Musician Impressively Displays a Multitude of Diverse World Sounds
    Cameroonian musician Richard Bona has made quite a winning disc of multi-cultural music tied together by his ebullient singing, creatively layered arrangements and jazz-infused rhythmic chops. He composed all the songs except one, a varied lot, and performs in his native tongue, Douala, which is one of two hundred Cameroonian dialects. He makes music that truly has a world view, but never does he sound contrived due to the consistency in his sound and his production craftsmanship. For instance, there are elements of a strong Brazilian influence, in particular, on the high-energy samba, "Manyaka o Brazil", which manages to make Marc Berthoumieux's accordion sound seductive, and the Ipanema-like "Calçadão de Copacabana".

    Editorial Review

    Largely the work of formidable musician-arranger Mulatu Astatqe, the 14 instrumentals here were originally issued on two LPs in 1972 and 1974 in Ethiopia, and represent a curious blend of soul-jazz and R&B with just a smattering of Ethiopian roots breaking up the stabbing horn lines, wah-wah guitars, and simmering electric piano. Curious, because at the time jazz was not very popular in Ethiopia, but that is no reflection on the quality of these primitively recorded sides of idiosyncratic Afro-funk. The grooves are long and laconic, the sound reminiscent of Miles Davis's "In a Silent Way" paired with Cannonball Adderly and Roy Ayers. But, as with all things Ethiopian, the music retains its own unique and unmistakable identity, one somewhere between a late-night jazz hole-in-the-wall group and a supper club belly-dancing combo. There are some very inventive arrangements and vigorous soloing, rendering a highly articulate and listenable music that was, at the time, doomed to go nowhere. Such is the retrospective value of reissues. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars a pleasure every time
    This is powerful, mystical, ancient, ethereal, psychedelic stuff, wrapped in the raw familiar shapes of jazz, blues, funk, and pop. The horn melodies are dark and hypnotic, punctuated by guitar tones ranging from raw and distorted to reverb wah-wah, joined by electric piano, flute, and various percussion. I love most of the pieces, I think I realized around track #4 that this was special. And listen to track 5, the horns kick it off for the first 2 seconds, then they go away until a sax comes in at 1:22 and plays for awhile as the rhythm just pounds away in the background, finally the horns rip back in at 2:20 and keep at it until the end with a great repeating riff. The last track even approaches a sort of Stooges 'LA Blues'.

    I got this CD after viewing Broken Flower, the movie. I loved the soundtrack and went to Amazon to find the CD. They helpfully showed me the Ethiopiques CD, and I liked their cuts on the movie soundtrack, so I thought I'd take a chance. Everyone I play it for wants to know more about them. I know very little, but love everything on this CD. I will definitly try more of their stuff. My daughter says, "this music makes me happy."

    Editorial Review

    As the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film in the 2006 Foreign-Language category, this album documents a number of performers out of South Africa. The film vividly portrays ghetto life in the Soweto Township. Fittingly, the music featured is often a gritty but danceable style of local hip-hop called kwaito. This emerging form is strong on beats with plenty of rapping and sing-along choruses. Zola, who does nine of the 19 tracks, is a superstar of the genre and is such a standout here that he should be able to parlay his soundtrack appearances into a music career outside his homeland. Highlights are the hard-hitting "Mdlwembe," the dancehall-like "It's Your Life" and the infectious "Ehlala." Of the other performers, Pitch Black Afro gets taste points on "Matofotofo" for sampling Screamin' Jay Hawkins' classic "I Put A Spell On You." There are a few mellower tracks too, but really this is an excellent survey of kwaito music and its brightest star.--Read more

    The soundtrack is amazing. The music embedded in here is strong and goes perfect with this picture.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
    A great sound of metal and a great blend of rock adds to this perfect cd. songs such as Fine Again and Broken make this a cd full of heart ache, but songs such as Gasoline and Fxxx It make a cd full of hatred and anger. It is a ccd you will love and most likely cherish.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic part two
    This cd with bonus DVD is fantastic. Amy Lee is so good with seether.. I just love them both. Great bounus DVD..

    I heard some of this while serving in Iraq. As a fan of "world music" it caught my attention right away. If you enjoy some exposure to other cultures and like to tap your foot, check this one out.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I love this cd
    I love the cd but the first song is messed up. there is a scratch or something on it. but I don't care much because the rest is awesome. I listen to it constantly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rocking the kasbah
    This was the CD that started Putumayo's Groove series;so far,it's one of the best.While many of the songs are about unrequited love,they are also incredibly danceable&upbeat.

    Never appreciated in the Paul Simon days, think he exploited the novelty of their sound (OK, not a Simon fan). Incedible harmonies, and teh guest stars like Melissa blend in beautifully.

    what can I say?this is as good as it gets for African vocal harmonies (i spent 1974-1977 in the Central African Republic.)

    I originally purchased this CD to listen to with the twins I care for (I am trying to expose them to all the music of the world).This CD turned out to be an awesome everyday CD for me.I like to listen to it while I am cleaning because it is upbeat and fun.Buy this CD.You will LOVE it!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars a joy to experience
    This music is such a joy to experience for our young family, be it cheerful sing alongs in the car, or dancing around in the living room at home.All the family love it so much, I wish more of the CDs in my collection were as good as this.Feel the spirit of Africa - so much life and energy captured by the music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Authentic African Tunes with Western Production Values
    All ethnic music appreciation education should be this fun!The Putumayo production company has done what had previously seemed impossible:Allow African artists to play THEIR music, not westernize it into unrecognizability (ala Deep Forest), but expertly produce it with a quality and clarity not previously available in that continent.This is one excellent album.

    This group makes music beautiful, peaceful and soulful.So calming and precious.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This CD shows their amazing range
    Like many North Americans, I first heard Ladysmith on Paul Simon's Graceland album (by the way, the DVD of the making of that album is terrific).Last year I bought this CD, and it's been in continuous rotation on my CD player.There are lovely hymns (I only know they're hymns because they end in Amen) and very silly love songs like Paulina.It's a mini-vacation to listen to these guys!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A truly spiritual album
    This collection of Ladysmith Black Mambazo tunes is more than just a 'greatest hits' collection. It stands by itself as an artwork, all of the songs fitting a certain mood - one of joy, healing and positive christian spirituality. Read more

    i listened to this while pregnant, then while nursing. now we listen to it at bedtime, and sometimes in the car. the music is so beautiful and soothing, it's one of my favorites in any category.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You don't need a baby to enjoy this
    This is a great CD and I often listen to it without my child around. I've even played it when we have company and they comment on it being good. The music on this CD is very similar to some of the African influenced music on Graceland. Other CDs in the series are as good. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Life in the balance
    This is a beautifully light, breezy album that will sweep you away to warm summer days.Sara Tavares recalls her native homeland, Cabo Verde, with references to Lisboa and other places, in a wonderful collection of songs.Hers is quite a different voice from that of the great Cesaria Evora.It is young, vibrant and guides the listener in a new direction away from the mornas that Evora was so famous for.Tavares is one of several young Cabo Verdean singers, but to me she is the most promising, as her music has a very international feel to it, a confluence of African and European rhythms that at times seem Caribbean in flavor.She has been traveling all over the place and has a great personal website, so check her out!You will be hearing a lot more from her.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!
    With this, her third album (the first two, sadly, are not available in the US), Sara Tavares emerges as a mature singer, songrwiter and musician. Balance is authentic and fresh, often playful, and always tender... it's an excellent showcase for her beautiful voice. On the strength of this recording Ms. Tavares seems destined to become a major name on the world music circuit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars We Love It!!
    I put this on my 19month old daughter's Wish List for Christmas and we just listened to it today.She loved the animal sounds in the beginning and danced to some of the music.It's not something she'll sit down and just listen to as a storytime yet, but I think it will be a timeless addition to our CD collection.As an adult, I enjoyed listening to the stories and the music.A good buy for younger and older children as the music is very rythymic, but not too loud (I think my daughter would have liked it as an infant).

    5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful for our 2-yr-old
    This album is a great hit with our toddler.Many, many nights she requests to listen to this CD as she goes to sleep.The rhythms are wonderful for young ears, she loves to sing the choruses with the children on the recording............it tickles me to see my daughter respond so positively to lyrics in a language foreign to her.
