Frederic Galliano and the African Divas
Self-Titled (Pias America)

By: Alex Steininger

With more than twenty instruments, twelve singers, and thirty musicians, Frederic Galliano has teamed up with a backing band he dubs The African Divas to create a seventy-three minute collection of American electronica infused into traditional African tribal sounds. The outcome is an unparalleled collection of jazzy, rhythmic sound textures, loose grooves, danceable beats, and plenty of culture to boot. This is an album of unquestionable imagination and magnitude, the type of record most artists strive to make but never come close. I'll give it an A-.
