    Enchanting African stories with music

    I am a 60 year old African, living in California. I have enchanted listeners from toddler to geriatric with my copy of this CD. Ladysmith Black Mambazo's music is superlative, the narration clear and pleasant and the stories universal. You cannot make a mistake by purchasing this CD.
