The 5 star & rave reviews are all over the press, dance floors manifestations in Africa, Europe, USA, Japan & Australia. attest to its popularity or by word of mouth recomendations.
Now in print as always and awaiting your own enjoyment and review.
For those that don't know, guitar wizard Dally Kimoko casts his spell through out the Cd. A single note from the lead vocalist identify Shimita El Diego who not only delivers very smooth and high spirited vocals, but also does it so well in the native Ashanti language of Ghana so much so that even Ghanaians marvel at his apparent grounding and dexterity in the lingua franca. Ngouma Lokito's signature bass line is easily recognizable by aficionados without identification. Lokassa Ya Mbongo a master guitarist, arranger and composer has played on over a thousand records from many countries all over Africa. His acoustic/rhythm arrangements are ever so sweet that it leaves you insatiable making you wanting more and more and more.
Together these guys are the crème de la crème (best of the best) and their name "Soukous Stars" is by no coincidence but rather an assurance of quality musicianship.
"This Cd is as great for dancing 'till you drop' as it is for listening over and over again" so says one critic.
Get this Cd and go home happy! "Certainly one of Africa's best dance tunes ever" so says the critics. Enjoy the music and let the fun begin.
