Review:
Hypnotic, caressing, soothing...these songs speak to the listener in the universal language of lullabies. The harmonies are gorgeous; the voices are tender; the instruments are haunting. The double-cased packaging with its Kente cloth design, embroidered African animals, and die-cut scalloped edges is as handsome as the music. An accompanying booklet contains notes about the performers, the languages and the origins of the songs as well as lyrics and translations.
