AllMusic Review by

This is an outstanding recording by a fine woman singer and a man who developed his own acoustic guitar style, avoiding any conscious influence from outside. (Unconscious influences, of course, are a different issue.) This is the real thing, by a local hero of the southern Casamance recorded (extremely well) on location. Altogether, it's exceptional acoustic guitar, and more evidence that African acoustic guitar is alive and highly creative, even if the local record industries have blinders.
