Great singing but.....Universal have not helped
on 30 July 2009
This is a tremendously talented young choir and well disciplined. The material chosen varied and some of the arrangements were far too commercial and Euro-Americanised. Universal are probably shot themselves in the foot here! 'Jambo' is heard as a theme in the Mombassa hotels! This is a problem affecting a lot of good performers in Africa that are trying to catch the markets outside their continent. The fact, Africa has art music and composers that will match any outside the continent is not conveyed on this album. Congrats to Fred Onovwerosuoke on his exceptional arrangements that DO share the Spirit of Africa.
