Phenomenal and Unique!!!
This cd is a unique blend of a strong, proud woman's original poetry of life experiences, beautiful and soulful folk-jazz singing and improvised, swirling atmospheric music.
I haven't heard anything so unique in quite a long time.
U-Meleni and her musicans should be extremely proud of this cd.
Highly recommended!!!

I've known this sister since we were 4 years old and Soul Psalms is a creative reflection of the growth, love, pain, culture and pride that have always warmed and inspired the lives of all those who know her. CD is Uniquely African - but the message is universal. Looking forward to the next one!

Refreshing
Hey, U-meleni...I'm impressed. The vibe of the CD is refreshing. Definitiely made me feel the essence of Zim, but without question the spirit of an insightful writer, painting over landscapes of reggae, soul, blues and heartfelt music. I'm glad you've followed your heart. Keep building.
