AllMusic Review by

A sampler of contemporary world music pop artists, Stir It Up from Triloka Records is so bright and breezy that it almost has the sound of coffee perking on a bright sunny morning. From Ugandan multi-instrumentalist Samite's polyrhythmic "Maratu," which opens the album, through "Koba" by Madagascar's Tarika and "Musha Wenvu" by Thomas Mapfumo, Stir It Up never strays from a bubbling, light-as-air groove, the perfect soundtrack for energetic morning housecleaning.
