AllMusic Review by

The kora is a 21-string harp from West Africa played by oral historians, who pass on their traditions from generation to generation. Djimo Kouyate from Senegal sings and plays kora and drums on this recording. "His playing is gentle, the sounds haunting, and the final effect vital and original" New York Times.
