AllMusic Review by

This 1991 CD makes Simba sound just what it is: a first-rate 22-year-old Nairobi-based band with Tanzanian founder-members. Here are echoes of 1960s Tanzania, Simba's love of Dr. Nico, the East African vocal and instrumental take on the Cuba/Congo connection, the ringing, delicate drive of a chop-laden band playing one of the great African idioms with unselfconscious brilliance.
