The Journey

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sheridan
This remarkable Somalian singer lays intricate vocal lines over funky grooves for a unique world-pop confection. What's more remarkable than this solo debut is the story behind her journey to freedom, fleeing Somalia and winding up in a Danish refugee camp, where she was "discovered" by an arranger who brought her to the attention of Peter Gabriel's RealWorld label. The layers of sound on this disc blend techno with a more traditional Afro-pop sound. It all makes for some of the most passionate dance music you can find.
