Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every so often, an album comes along that reminds us why we are so moved by song: the melody, the rhythm, and the message. Putumayo has presented a variety of world music CDs, but African music has been the consistent heart and soul of its offerings. Putumayo World Music is pleased to present Acoustic Africa, a captivating collection showcasing some of Africa's greatest singer-songwriters in beautifully stripped down displays of acoustic mastery. These artists are helping to spearhead an acoustic revolution in stark contrast to the studio-based, synthesized dance music that became the standard for African pop-stars of the 1980's and 90's. On Acoustic Africa, you'll discover gentle folk songs from Senegal, a protest song from South Africa, blues-tinged ballads from Mali and much more.

Synopsis:

Some of the continent's premier singer-songwriters are featured on this truly unique and unplugged collection.
