Description
Music is an intrinsic part of life in Africa, and at bedtime lullabies are often enhanced by the mbira (thumb piano) and kora (harp-lute), as well as the lulling strains of parental voices. In addition to the essential, gorgeous "Wimoweh" by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, this collection also includes Ali Farka Touré and Toumani Diabaté's instrumental "Simbo" and Angélique Kidjo's jazzy "Lakutshona Llanga."

"Virginia Mukwesha is hypnotic on the mbira … she also has the entire bonus disc devoted to her work. Saba offers a subdued take on the traditional 'Huwaiahuwa,' a song that has almost Celtic cadences for a truly international feel. Kora player Ba Cissoko uses his instrument to wonderful effect on 'Manssani,' with rippling splashes of notes and gorgeous tones from a second, electric kora. It's perhaps apt that the disc should conclude with Miriam Makeba, Mama Africa herself, with the 1974 love song 'Malaika,' to give everyone good dreams."—All Music Guide

"This surprising little gem ... works for any age group due to its grown-up selection of the gentle giants of African music."—Traveller Magazine

"The Ethiopian track, 'Mother's Love', composed by the pianist-nun Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbro, [is] a choice so inspired and so unusual that in lullaby album compilation terms it's pretty much indicative of genius."—Pop Matters

"A perfect selection of tracks; 4 stars."—Songlines
