Product Description

Artist: Various

In the liner notes for this compilation from Narada, Dr. Abraham Caceres offers a brief overview of the role of voice in African musical culture, mentioning that although drums are often considered the quintessential African instrument, the voice is actually the most common. AFRICAN VOICES offers a sampling of the vocal capabilities of five illustrious vocalists: Ayub Ogada (Kenya), Vieux Diop (Senegal), Samite (Uganda), Lucky Diop (Senegal) and Kevin Nathaniel (America). The instrumentation varies with each artist, but primarily features percussion, flutes, kora, mbira, guitar and other traditional sounds. This is a fantastic showcase for the talents of each of these artists; after listening you'll have the urge to hunt down their full length albums
