AllMusic Review by

Alongside the syncreto hit-hunting of some highly hyped young francophone African musicians, there seems to be developing a kind of new wave roots movement based on a melding of guitar -- often acoustic -- and balafon. Canadian resident Diallo overdubbed acoustic guitar, balafon and various percussion instruments in a style that uses various influences as a sounding-board for his roots.
