Zimbe! - Come, sing the songs of Africa!

2008

by Alexander L'Estrange


'A profoundly moving work, Zimbe! consists of songs from all over Africa, arranged by UK composer L'Estrange, and performed by a mixed adult choir, children's choir and a jazz quintet featuring the deft Simon Allen (sax), Adam Riley (percussion) and Mike Bradley (drums). The combination of swing, gospel and a cappella has an immediate impact. From the opener, Njooni! Zimbe!, through to the original Song for the soul, Alexander has captured the essence of the material and generated impassioned performances. An important release which will hopefully inspire school groups and choirs nation-wide to perform these pieces.' The Musician, Autumn 2010
