AllMusic Review by

In a sequel to and amplification of Bebey's 1986 Akwaaba, Amaya uses instruments ranging from balafon and sanza to synthesizer and acoustic piano, all played by Bebey in wide pieces reworking or taking off from traditional melodies and procedures. The emotional range is wide, with cuts as deep as Akwaaba, and cuts charming and poppish.
