≥Inkululeko,≤ a Xhosa word meaning freedom and redemption, is a fitting moniker for this five-piece female quintet from Austin, Texas. Three Xhosa (Xhosa is one of the traditional South African languages), as well as Afro-Cuban and Eastern European folk songs, comprise this world-music mosaic. The repetition of vocalized syllables, and the character of the native languages to the Western ear, create a meditative quality that feels as natural as the rhythm of the ocean. Indeed, these songs do transcend time: the polyrhythms and simple, honest melodies are a musical accompaniment to the struggles of civilizations throughout the ages.
