BEST AFRICAN ALBUM 2006 JPF AWARDS Zuba is an international collective producing a heady upbeat crossover mix of West African folk, Latin rhythms, contrapuntal guitars and melodic vocals. Origanal Vibes

 

Afro-pop from the heart of Liberia to UK Scotland? The latest take on Afro-Celtic music comes from straight outta Glasgow. Really more Afro than Celtic, the band includes members from France, Scotland, Ghana, and Uganda, led by Liberian singer Jerry Boweh. The Shimmering guitars, soaring vocals, and positive messages combine a toe-tapping danceable multicultural masala with elements of Afro-pop (ala Youssou N'Dour, Angelique Kidjo, Salif Keita), jazz, jam band, and rock.

 

Their lyrical messages echo the upbeat music, from the title track's exhortation to be careful and unified in a time of chaos to the celebration of each person's special gifts in "Gigadeh." But Zuba doesn't turn a blind eye to trouble: "Tomayziyi" is a plea against war in Liberia and across the globe, and also contains an amazingly infectious guitar riff. "Zuba (Cheer Up)" is an appropriate theme song for the group, a great beat wedded to the message "Come and join the celebration; Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere." As good as this album is, one gets the impression that the full Zuba, Bassa Beat experience is available only at live concerts. So see Zuba, Bassa Beat if you can, or buy their CD for a taste of their feel-good Bassa Beat sound.
