5.0 out of 5 stars A miracle work, 22 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watina (Audio CD)
The gentle, swaying title track that speaks about the simple occurance of being stranded on a road opens this truly remarkable record.
A melting point of African percussion and a myriad of sacred rhythms make up the music of Andy Palacio and The Garifuna collective.
I was left in tears by the incredibly moving,"Baba," a sacred prayer sung by The Garifuna people at church in Belize, the haunting voice of Adrian Martinez standing out. Other personal favourites are the driving,"Miami," and the bluesy,"In times to come," both wistful, expressing confusion and doubt over their people's future.
These songs speak of longing and loss, a people dislodged from their African home but the soul running through this music leaves a message twinged with light and hope.
This is not just a record, more a social document of The Garifuna people and as with so many world music releases these days the liner notes are excellent, offering a short summary that puts each song in context with a translation of the lyrics into English.
Please make this absolutely stunning record an immediate purchase.
