AllMusic Review by

The band Kotoja, on their release Kotoja: The Super Sawale Collection, plays upbeat, melodic music that seems to embody a spirit of freedom and happiness. This collection features some of the band's best songs. The music is a fusion of African rhythms, funk and rock, but the music can be as soft as it is energetic. "Semijeje" is a sweet love song in its own brassy, funk manner. In fact, the brass sound is very prominent in all the music, giving some of the pieces a Chicago-Philadelphia funk-blues kind of sound.
