Marie Daulne, the founder and fronting member of Zap Mama since the early 1990s, has lived a life that rivals Homer’s Odyssey. Filled with peril and triumph, globe-spanning quests, and a series of personal achievements that seem almost heroic in scope, her story is one of epic proportions in the annals of world music. She stands with one foot firmly planted in tradition and the other in ... Read more in Amazon's Zap Mama Store

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm sure glad I discovered this one 17 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of world music, I consider this a true discovery. This is a quite diversified set with a number of different rhythms. There's R & B here, and rap, along with some raggae, and of course West African. The female voices backed with the varied instrumentation give us songs that are sometimes passionate, sometimes intimate, sometimes pulsating, but always enjoyable. Highly recommended not only to world music fans, but to r&b afficianados also.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Introduction 6 Sep 2000
By Ibochild - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For those who have never experienced the aural pleasures of Zap Mama, this CD is a fine introduction. Unlike their earlier CD's (which are also very good), this set has much more instrumentation and is more accessible to a general audience. Combining elements of many different styles of music, this CD is also beyond simple categorization. "Belgo Zairoise," the first track on the CD, is a good example. This rousing recording, takes you on a musical journey of three continents. The song ends with a self-affirming re-working of a classic Bob Marley & the Wailers lyric, with the women singing "No Man, No Cry." Open-minded fans of hip-hop will like the funky, "Baba Hooker," which features group leader Marie Daulne's sensual vocals with Spearhead's Michael Franti. Other cuts that immediately come to mind are "African Sunset," "Warmth" and "Damn Your Eyes." Zap Mama also offers a distinctive rendition of Phoebe Snow's classic, "Poetry Man." [For those fortunate to see Zap Mama's Marie Daulne sing a duet of the song with Ms. Snow on public television's "Sessions at West 54th Street," witnessed something very special. Hopefully, that episode will soon be available on video and/or CD soon]. In short, all of the tracks on the CD are first-rate. For me, this is the most purchased CD in recent memory -- either as gifts or because people I've loaned the CD, refuse to give it up! If you like music with rich multi-layered vocals and highly imaginative arrangements, this is definitely worth a listen. If, after purchasing the CD, you like the a cappella material the best, check out one of their earlier CD's next. If the funky side is what appeals to you, check out A MA ZONE next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Zap Mama 17 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Seven has a bit more of an R & B feel than A Ma Zone. It is a consistently incredible mix of Afropean rock and American Hip Hop, R & B, and Funk. I was very impressed by the compilations with Spearhead, although Michael Franti is depoliticized in his Zap Mama work (and vice versa). The understanding, blend, and use of such a variety of musical styles makes Zap Mama the most innovative artists today. And sheer talent!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite album for years 7 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first enjoyed Zap Mama's "Adventures in Afropea", their a capella album, about 9 years ago. When I heard their album "7" a few years ago, however, my mind was blown many times over and continues to be every time I listen to it (which is often). This album retains the beauty and intricacy of their a capella vocal work, but melds their gorgeous vocals with elements from many styles of music. If I had to classify this album I'd have to call it "world music", but it defies classification - it is completely original, funky, energetic, beautiful, surprising, and passionate. I love it, and I think it's Zap Mama's best work to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant musical collages 14 Jun 2000
By Gregory D. Zimet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Seven is a brilliant album by Zap Mama and represents a natural progression from their two prior releases. Many styles are integrated beautifully into irrisistable musical collages. African rhythms and music, European pop, hip-hop, and reggae are combined in creative, extraordinary ways. My favorite songs are Belgo Zairoise, Poetry Man, and Baba Hooker, but the album as a whole is remarkably consistent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zap Mama moving more mainstream? 10 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Zap Mama since I first heard their first album. This album leans heavily towards an R&B style and is a much different sound than their past albums. I hope they're not going to stick with this style as I think they have a much tighter, cleaner sound with their first couple albums. I wouldn't pick this as your -first- zap mama album, but on the other hand, it grows on you.
