Urban griot music for today... The heavy bass and drums rhythm section provide a sensous, powerful groove which supports the vocal, instrumental and percussive meanderings of the rest of the band. Rock solid and well-recorded, it's an effective blend of the griot tradition and the possibilities afforded by technology, and not a little thought and imagination in the compositions and arrangements. Stirring brass and rippling kora provide the icing on the cake. (MG/28.03.2005 on WMCE)
