Musicians from Ghana, Kenya, Republic of Congo, and Zimbabwe lead powerful performances by five ensembles of African musicians who now live in the United States. Studio recordings from 1995-1998, these rhythmic tracks feature memories of childhood, the instrumentation and performance styles of contemporary Afropop, and experimentation with new international musical styles. 67 minutes. "Not only does this collection shine the spotlight on some excellent transplanted musicians playing African-styled music in America, it also underscores those all-important links between African musical culture and the American milieu of soul, R&B, gospel, and funk." — CMJ New Music Report
