When you see a 3 album set for such a low price, with a cover that looks (deliberately) amateur, the natural reaction is that it cannot be any good, or that the tracks will be in your collection on other albums. But if you want a primer to African music, upbeat dance, feelgood beats, or maybe want to take your guitar playing in a different direction...whatever the reason, this is a great place to start. These beginners guides will boost your collection, Nascente have a solid reputation, and this one is put together by Nigel Williamson, a contributing editor for the World Music mag Songlines. Track notes brief but informative, crazy horns, guitar lines that twist and turn, complex rhythms, dancehall voodoo, perhaps knowing what the words are about would spoil it. You can't go wrong. Open your ears and enjoy!
