VARIOUS ARTISTS
MOZAMBIQUE ONE

NEW CD

(GlobeStyle CD ORB 086, 1994)

It used to be that folks looking for a little exotica would turn to Africa for some pygmy hocketing or talking drums to spice their diet of Western pop, but increasingly African pop music has grown to sound like hip-hop and other discoid fare. The frisson of otherness can still be found, if that's what you're after, in this sampler from Mozambique which showcases fifteen different groups playing music unlike anything you're likely to have heard before. Mozambique has resisted outside influences even as it struggled with a long brutal civil war, which was still going on at the time of this recording.

A Ladysmith Black Mambazo tribute by Makwaela might sound a bit familiar, and perhaps too the Gregorian harmonies of the Grupo Estrela Vermelha, but it soon drifts into otherworldliness. Traditional log drums have been replaced by oil drums or pieces of corrugated metal, and coffee cans filled with pebbles substitute for gourd rattles, but the indigenous rhythms and melodies endure.
