5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning debut vocal acrobatics, 26 Dec 2007

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Zap Mama (Audio CD)
aka Adventures in Afropea. This is Marie Daulne's African inspired group's first album (from 1993?). It predominantly features the polyphonic style of singing learned from the forest peoples of the Congo (originally named pygmies). The voice is purely the instrument on these songs and you are lifted up, twirled around, dropped and picked up again by the sheer artistry of this group. I love Abadou- inspired by a Syrian song about a man crying over one of his wives who's done a runner from his harem. The modern spiritual "Bottom" is about a sinking boat and was written by Jean-Louis Daulne (brother I think). Mizike is a work song- based on the chant of women beating clothes on rocks in Zaire- a call to forget material possessions and to be imspired by Mr Music. the final song links us to Marie Daulne's European half of her ancestry with a 16th century Spanish song "Din Din."

I saw Zap Mama years ago at a WOMAD gig and this is exactly what they were like then. I love it and it brings back old memories.

The ladies are crazy and delightful. And the titles are just right: I love Mupepe! Beautiful harmonies, this is the magic of Africa.
