AllMusic Review by

The music on these 1989 recordings is both wonderful and very varied: timbila, a one-note-shawm ensemble, choirs including Afro-Luso-Arab women's choruses (strongly Luso-, vocally, which the notes ignore), an mbube-influenced group, Shangaan acoustic guitar, several fine urban-influenced pieces on local or homemade instruments. The notes match up, too.
