All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Long before the term world music was a twinkle in anyone's eye, Osibisa were mixing rock and African music specifically Ghanaian highlife with great success.

The big songs are all collected here, unfortunately in several different mixes ranging from "Alternate" to "Acoustic," which rather dilutes their impact and actually does the band's legacy little justice. That they were ahead of their time remains apparent, even after all these years, and there is a great joy in the sounds they made. But Wango Wango does include ...

That they were ahead of their time remains apparent, even after all these years, and there is a great joy in the sounds they made. But Wango Wango does include all their big songs, like "Sunshine Day," which still exudes a lovely warm vibe, "Coffee Song," "Africa We Go Go," and others, including their version of Miriam Makeba's hit "Pata Pata." Some of the other tracks aren't as well known by any means, but they still have plenty to offer -- perhaps more so than many thought when they were first released. All in all, this forms a good introduction to a pioneering group. At 31 tracks, it's possibly a bit long for the casual listener, but still worth the time.
