    Drum Call is full of life and spirit. Extraordinary percussion work is the backdrop to beautiful African chants and songs. Drum Call opens with an inspired program of calls, celebratory chants and prayers to the orisa or Yoruba deities. They are performed in the Yoruba/Locumi language in a call and response style. The album continues with a lively interchange between vocals and percussives. Other tracks include instrumental djembe pieces and a Cuban instrumental. It is clear from every sparkling selection that Nuru's music comes from her heart and her musical roots in African-Cuban folk music. ~ MusD
