AllMusic Review by

This fine traditional CD from eastern Zaire was recorded in the early ‘70s and compiled for width rather than depth, with a good range of music, vocal and instrumental, fine recording and fine documentation. And the pieces seem selected for musical attractiveness (in the outside listener's terms) as well as authenticity, giving them emotional as well as intellectual resonance.
