NDALA KASHEBA
Yellow Card
(Limitless Sky)
Congo-born in Tanzania, he's what guitar paradise is made of even though that heavenly collection passed him by. Definitive is the 12-string acoustic he cradles in both photos. Sustaining is gentle singer Baziano Bweti, who died in 2002 preaching AIDS education. Of good cheer are King Malou's perky alto themes on "Massamba" and the super-collectible "Kokolay." Also nice are the clicks, the claps, the coro. You believe in staying positive? East African soukous is still writing the book. A MINUS

NDALA KASHEBA Yellow Card
Limitless Sky

Famous in Tanzania for his voice and 12-string guitar, expatriate Congolese musician Kasheba, brings a touch of the rumba to East Africa, letting the sounds mix and create and very spicy stew. Backed by a full band, with several singers, and horns on some tracks, the sound is full, and quite joyous. A very adept guitarist, Kasheba might be one of the very few African 12-string players, his Congolese leads (often on 6-string) fluent over the East African rhythms, making for a marvelous pan-African collaboration that works well

acoustic dance which brings back memories
The versions of Dezo Dezo and Kokolay are a refreshing variation on those made famous by Tshala Muana (of course the songs were written by Kasheba). All the songs grow on you and have a lovely live feel.

Music Buyer


Ndala kasheba is undoubtably one of the great African guitarists, who has tragically been overlooked as he is still largely unknown outside his region. Now that the Limitless Sky label has made this effort to promote his music I must encourage everyone to give this album a listen. You will hear his fluid performance, on 12-string acoustic guitar, and his classic compositions which have made him a famous name in Tanzania and the east african scene for over 30 years.
