When I was in L.A., the public radio station was raving about this group. Now I see why. Thanks.

Sweet Honey In The Rock, or more notably Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Zap Mama isn’t. However, I can use them all in the same sentence as they have mastered harmonizing acappella. What makes Zap Mama different than Sweet Honey, Ladysmith, Take 6, and others is that indeed a singleton star was cultivated. In listening to the music, can you pick out Marie Daulne’s individual contribution or the harmony?

I can’t. But then this is the first I’ve heard of the group. What I’m saying is that harmonically and aurally can you imagine the group without Marie? I can if the voices remain in harmony. No disrespect to Marie either. I just don’t hear individuals…I hear a chorus.

The music is beautiful. Man, I’ve gotta learn French.

P.S., Guzophela sounds like it is running at slow speed.
