An inspiring collaboration. I was introduced to "Talking Timbuktu" before spending much time with American Blues music, I can honestly say that it was this recording of virtuosos Ry Cooder and Ali Farka Toure that opened my ears to the power, sensuality, and magic of the Blues and it's many forms.

  • Sun Araw has the sound I've been looking for, I'm not sure if I want everyone to buy their music, cause I want to keep them as my treasured secret for a little while longer.

This one feels like an instant Grammy winner to me. About this product: Throw Down Your Heart chronicles banjo virtuoso and 18 time Grammy award winner Béla Fleck's musical journey to Africa to explore the little known African roots of the banjo. Bela's boundary-breaking musical adventure takes him to Uganda, Tanzania, The Gambia, and Mali, and provides a glimpse of the beauty and complexity of African music. Using his banjo, Béla transcends barriers of language and culture, finding common ground and forging connections with musicians from very different backgrounds.

The music on this album reflects the social and historical forces at work during the closedown of the '60s dream; music made by close-knit collectives and individual visionaries, by prisoners and eccentrics, by mystics and political radicals. It includes music by acknowledged masters, and moments of brilliance by unsung figures known to us from just one or two recordings. There are songs from prison bands, Egyptian big bands, high school jazz ensembles, African musicians gigging with free jazz legends, and African American jazz heroes.

BLK JKS (pronounced "black jacks"), The Rolling Stone Magazine said "... After Robots incorporates everything from sunny South African kwaito to art-rock shredding; the result has been compared to Sonic Youth and TV on the Radio..." "Kwa Nqingetje" was the track that caught my ear, featuring vocals that reminded me of Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues over a loose waltzing ballad punctuated by Jazz drumming. I will keep a ear out for Blk Jks, I'd like how they evolve.

  • What is there to even say about this, I love this cd with all of my heart. EVERY last single song is a little ode to life.

Benda Bilili means "look beyond appearances" - literally: "put forward what is hidden" Staff Benda Bilili are like nothing you have ever seen or heard before. A group of paraplegic street musicians who live in and around the grounds of the zoo in Kinshasa, Congo, they make music of astonishing power and beauty. The band's mesmerising rumba-rooted grooves, overlaid with vibrant vocals, remind you at times of Cuban nonchalance, at other times of the Godfather of Soul himself. You can hear echoes of old-school rhythm and blues, then reggae, then no-holds barred funk. Four senior singer/guitarists sitting on spectacularly customized tricycles, occasionally dancing on the floor of the stage, arms raised in joyful supplication, are the core of the band, backed by a younger, all-acoustic, rhythm section pounding out tight beats. Over the top of this are weird, infectious guitar-like solos performed by a 17 year-old prodigy on a one-string electric lute he designed and built himself out of a tin can.

If you want sweet music to fill your ears and uplift your spirit, then you must listen to the Watoto Children's Chior. This talented group of tomorrow's leaders, have inspired me to raise up from any problems I may face, and to have faith. The Watoto foundation supports orphaned children whose lives have been ravaged by war and disease. My favorite song on the CD is "I Am Not Forgotten!"

Check out what Amazon said: This six-foot-tall goddess is indisputably one of modern Africa's greatest singers. Her magnificent, throaty alto and exotic yet accessible style have already won her an impressive international following. Oumou's lyrics are nearly as compelling as her voice and person; her open affirmation of female sensuality and diatribes against polygamy have irritated conservative elders but delighted her contemporaries. She is an exponent of the blues-like Wassoulou tradition, which takes its name from a province in Southern Mali. The region's music is based upon Asian-sounding five-tone scales and is usually accompanied by the resonant kamelengoni (a six-stringed hunters' harp) and searing, earthy fiddles, while jaunty polyrhythms are marked by wood drums, metal scrapers, and/or shakers. This double album constitutes an ideal introduction. It contains a twelve-track "greatest hits" package (picked from her first three albums, Moussoulou, Ko Sira, and Worotan) plus eight new tunes that have never before been available on CD.

  • Often lovely, often soulful, often played, one of my secret pleasure.

  • Ever since the soundtrack of"Last King of Scotland" I've been eager to get more African Funk into my music collection. "Nigeria Disco Funk Special: The Sound Of The Underground Lagos Dancefloor 1974-79" is my latest find.

  • What a cool idea. Since U2 has always championed Africa, especially Bono, why not have African recording artists cover some of U2's greatest songs.

Since U2 has always championed Africa, especially Bono, why not have African recording artists cover some of U2's greatest songs. From hits like "Mysterious Ways" and "With or Without You", to lesser known songs like "Seconds" and "Love is Blindness". Yes, there's "One" and "Pride (In the Name of Love)", which I think there should be a moratorium on covering, but overall, there are some really interesting takes on some great songs. Bono & co should be proud.
