Mateso (Reprise)

Muungano has been aptly described as "Emissaries of Kenyan Culture," and has just completed a remarkable third tour of the US. The 30-strong, mixed-voice Choir creates a powerful, rhythmic, infectious sound with sweet, powerful solos. Some light percussion accompaniment, but the emphasis is on these amazing voices and harmonies. 13 songs, some favorites are the title tune, "Maina," "Wanamichezo," "Malaika," "Niwaro Nono," "Bhazo" (a South African freedom song), "Selena," "Msichana Mrembo," and "Sikuta," but there's really not a weak or uninteresting cut here. The authentic rhythms and joyful singing flow like an African river throughout "Mateso!"
