NEW REVIEWS OF NDALA KASHEBA'S ALBUM:
by Robert Christgau
June 2nd, 2003 2:30 PM
Congo-born in Tanzania, he's what guitar paradise is made of even though that heavenly collection passed him by. Definitive is the 12-string acoustic he cradles in both photos. Sustaining is gentle singer Baziano Bweti, who died in 2002 preaching AIDS education. Of good cheer are King Malou's perky alto themes on "Massamba" and the super-collectible "Kokolay." Also nice are the clicks, the claps, the coro. You believe in staying positive? East African soukous is still writing the book. A MINUS
NDALA KASHEBA Yellow Card
Famous in Tanzania for his voice and 12-string guitar, expatriate Congolese musician Kasheba, brings a touch of the rumba to East Africa, letting the sounds mix and create and very spicy stew. Backed by a full band, with several singers, and horns on some tracks, the sound is full, and quite joyous. A very adept guitarist, Kasheba might be one of the very few African 12-string players, his Congolese leads (often on 6-string) fluent over the East African rhythms, making for a marvelous pan-African collaboration that works well
