Product Description

Every so often, an album comes along that reminds us why we are so moved by song: the melody, the rhythm, and the message. Acoustic Africa is a captivating collection showcasing some of Africa’s greatest singer-songwriters in beautifully stripped down displays of acoustic mastery. These artists are helping to spearhead an acoustic revolution in stark contrast to the studio-based, synthesized dance music that became the standard for African pop-stars of the 1980’s and 90’s. On Acoustic Africa, you’ll discover gentle folk songs from Senegal, a protest song from South Africa, blues-tinged ballads from Mali and much more.

A portion of Putumayo’s proceeds from the sale of this CD will be donated to Mercy Corps in support of their efforts to help AIDS victims and the victims of the civil war in Darfur, and to Oxfam America and Oxfam Novib’s “Make Trade Fair” campaign to improve trade conditions for African countries.
