      This is incredible. Why no one has chosen to review this up to now will remain an eternal mystery. No matter. Mandingo is spearheaded by the inimitable Foday Musa Suso, a kora player & composer of world renown who fortunately found himself absorbed in polyglot Bill Laswell's orbit. This is firmly an Axiom joint, in all respects. Laswell & synthesist Jeff Bova dress up Suso's kora magic & Afropop sensibilities in all manners of (then) modern digital/electronic fabrics, with thunderous drum machines, widescreen synths, furious dance rhythms, and day-glo club aesthetics. The result is a life-affirming, energetic, buoyant world music/electronica hybrid that is every bit as stimulating in 1990 as it is today. Criminally ignored for *way* too long, and undeservedly so. Pure brilliance.
