AllMusic Review by

If you have trouble digesting computer-driven worldbeat, travel back in time to memories of the age of steamship travel via a 13-piece, Detroit-based jazz orchestra playing the sweet sounds of classic African pop for the duration of the cruise. Got songs by legends Masekela, Fela, Miriam Makeba, Ibrahim and more. Got a horn-of-plenty updated highlife. Want Langa langa, you say? Mbalax? Bikutsi? Sorry, the engines can't take it.
