All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
As a light, jazzy trip through world music, Bayuba Cante, fronted by three glowing female voices, is hard to beat. Skilled musicianship in any number of styles, interesting arrangements, and some excellent writing all combine for something that's satisfying to hear, with "Bembé Afrique" and the Indian-inflected "La Topa Saray" particular standouts.
