This is a fine collection of songs from Brazil, Spain, Ghana, Colombia, Cuba, Turkey, Serra Leone, Ghana, Israel, and the USA. The geographic diversity in the music is unified by the lively choral vocal style and percussive backgrounds. This energetic, heartfelt music, full of lovely turns of phrase and harmonies, sometimes boisterous, sometimes yearning, will be a treasure for those seeking out diverse music and female vocals.
