AllMusic Review by

This follow-up to the groundbreaking Tanzania Sound has many of the same bands and all the light, kicking, joyous, guitar-centered danceability of the original. From the early-'60s tarab-tinged Kiko Kids to the irresistible late-'60s take on the Congo sound of groups like NUTA Jazz, these bands created an ideal mix of voices, horns and guitars. This is the sound that formed Mlimani Park, etc.
