AllMusic Review by

Here's one take on the Zaiko phenomenon, the great youth-quake band formed in 1970 which helped set the tone for today's soukous. Zaiko goes for a deeply layered, multipercussion sound with a tremendous swing which is anything but desperately trendy. Songa-Fiele has plenty of hints of non-zouk outside influences (relatively rare in soukous) and a very well-produced warm sound.
