AllMusic Review by

This CD offers great introduction to the Congo-based musical style known as soukus. It contains a wide mix of tunes that range from Kanda Bongo Man's three-minute "Sai" to Tabu Laey 'Rochereau''s sprawling 11-minute "Sarah." With comprehensive track information and artist bios, this album is as a good an introduction to the genre as one will find.
