Review:The peaceful hush of famed Ladysmith Black Mambazo's dream-inspired "Nomathemba" ("Hope"). The extraordinary beauty of "Mimi," a song of thanks sung by noted, new artist Mapumba of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The soothing simplicity of "Usa Cheme" ("Don't Cry'), sweetly crooned by Zimbabwean singer Chiwoniso Maraire. "Salaman," an instrumental caress played on the African harp by Toumani Diabatè and Ballakè Sissoko of Mali. A tranquil respite from the day's rush and fuss awaits listeners of any age in this beautifully considered collection of African lullabies and gentle love songs.
