Amoeba Review

11/19/2012

Great music for a great cause! This nonprofit charity series brings American and English rockstar singers into the studio with superb third-world musicians for some serious global message jams. The original spark was 2006's Rhythms del Mundo Cuba, which paired Buena Vista Social Club legends with stadium belters from Bono to Chris Martin, Jack Johnson & Adam Levine, delightfully spicing up the classics with tropical flavor. That album successfully raised money and awareness for climate disasters from the Indian Ocean tsunami to Hurricane Katrina. The Rhythms series returns with their newest volume, which lets Beyonce, Eminem, Mumford & Sons, Gotye and Fleet Foxes jam with African groovers like Toumani Diyabate, Bassekou Kouyate, Ali Farka Toure and even members of the late Miriam Makeba's band. The results show that, like storms and tsunamis, great music and good vibrations know no boundaries. Recommended!
