What the critics say...

CMJ (7/2/01, p.48) - "...A thoroughly modern 'world beat' recording that draws upon dance floor rhythms and African grooves to fuel an exuberantly poppy vision..."
Down Beat (1/02, p.47) - 4.5 stars out of 5 - "...His most cohesive, inspiring songbook yet, mixing his elements of trap, strap and hand percussion with techno beats..."
JazzTimes (10/01, p.86) - "...This music succeeds in celebrating the power of Indo-African groove-making."
