AllMusic Review by

Malawi-born Tony Bird's first album anticipated Paul Simon's fusion of African music and Western folk-pop by ten years. On this, his second album, he combines thoughtful lyrics about such African concerns as apartheid with celebrations of the continent's flora and fauna, using music that evokes both African and US/UK folk styles.
