Album Review

Landing on the Windham Hill label, Samite (having dropped the "Of Uganda" from his name several years back) offers a collection of songs inspired by his return to the African continent after approximately a decade of residence in the U.S. as a political refugee. The music is largely in keeping with his introspective folk style, but this time, several prominent Windham Hill artists make appearances, including Will Ackerman, Michael Manring, and Tuck & Patti's Patti Cathcart. The results are an intriguing fusion of African pop and new age whose sound actually leans more toward the latter.

Customer Reviews

A great artist...

I remember Samite performing at my local theatre when I was much younger and I have an autographed copy of this album. Glad to hear this music again.


This album really captures the essence of African music and is a great album to listen to in America. Definitely Sala Endongo is the best on the album followed by other great songs (Siwa, I'll Be Strong). Definitely worth checking out.
