5.0 out of 5 stars A devastatingly powerful work. 20 May 1999
By Alberta Hunter (alberta_hunter@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
African Portraits is a devastatingly powerful work; a piece of truth pouring into my ears. Strong vocals with great harmonies and layering, supported yet never overpowered by the orchestra. The drums played a major role rather than the usual delegation to a background position. Hannibal's judicious use of dissonance was an exquisite joy to the ear.
This is truly a classic of the nineties. May the peoples of the world have the determination and fortitude to move on from here.

3.0 out of 5 stars African Portraits 18 Jan 2006
By Evamariepresid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am not sure whether or not the album is also a part of a stage play. One of my favorites is the Victor Nelson's Cottonfield featuring Jevetta Steele as solist. It is often played every Sunday in the Chicago area in the Gospel timespan. Most of the other songs are filled with rich african ethnicity, an enjoyabale and entertaining album. I would like to know more about Hannibal and was this album from a broadway play. Either way you will be thoroughly entertained.

I purchased this cd to use for our Black History Month program. I like some of the songs, but not all.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing piece of music and history 4 Jan 2013

I am so proud that I was at a taping of the CD. The music and history of this CD is rich and stirring. Anyone who loves history and great music should have this in their collection.
5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece 31 July 2012
By Guilherme Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I recommend African Portraits, a beautiful and modern opera about the saga of the african people in the USA, which includes the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; Morgan state University Choir; african griot singer; kora and djembe players; blues and gospel singers; and a fantastic jazz group, the Hannibal Lokumbe quartet. Hearing Jevetta Steele singing the spirituals is a unique experience, impossible not to be touched by it. Everything is beatiful and very well done.
