I haven't even heard the cd but just reading the reviews made me physically convulse and froth at the mouth.

This album was inspired by the various 'Unplugged' titles that were released in the early to mid 1990's. The songs have been stripped down but come alive through evocative arrangements and with the help of several ethnic, folk instruments from both the South American Continent and Africa.
