AllMusic Review by

Negro Spirituals Africains presents Christian devotional songs sung in Africa, which allow a fascinating peek into the origins of the slave spirituals that had such an impact on the development of African-American popular music in the 20th century. It's also interesting to compare and contrast the similarities and differences, to hear the flashes of American gospel familiarity mixed with the strongly African musical feel.
