    In 2009 David Byrne's Luaka Bop label turned 21, and to celebrate the fact the label has issued a 15-song anthology entitled TWENTY FIRST CENTURY, TWENTY FIRST YEAR. The collection handpicks tracks from the Luaka Bop catalog, with an emphasis on South American artists such as Jorge Ben, Los Amigos Invisibles, and Susana Baca. But there's no shortage of variety here either, as the inclusion of singer-songwriter Aimee Man, retro-psychedelic soul troubadour Shuggie Otis, and African vocal troupe Zap Mama prove. The label's dedication to highly original groove-based music is evident on every track.

    Spin (p.92) - "Luaka Bop has cast an increasingly wide net....This comp honors the label's original mix-tape aesthetic."
