Album Notes
Ajak Kwai is the rare voice of an African woman singing the tribal music of her homelands. It is the traditional music of the great cattle camps of the East African savannahs fused with the bustling, chaotic rhythms and moods of the metropoli of Juba and Khartoum. Ajak has a haunting melodic voice which is distinctly African and to listen to her is to experience this amazing continent in all its colours, rhythms and mystery.

Whether Ajak is singing in Arabic, Sudanese or English she leaves you in no doubt as to the depth and richness of her Dinka roots. Music is the vehicle for her stories of extraordinary life experiences as a refugee, exiled from her home town. Ajak and her songs take us on a journey deeply feminine, unique from the Upper Nile to gospel singing in Cairo to the wide world of global music where she has successfully fused her African roots with a range of other styles and genres. She sings about freedom, peace, love and … cows.
