Trouw – 4 Star Review 19th Feb 2016 “It is a beautiful and sober record full of simple but profound songs. There are no frills, apart from a minimal adornment added by Trevor Warren’s Spanish guitar. No more is needed. The repetitive patterns in the rhythm and melody create an invocatory effect, a friendly rhythm wave which is lulling rather than goading. Such thriftiness and simplicity are allowable because of Ogada’s incredible voice. At times he’s hardly singing as it’s more like talking, but every single word is pregnant with meaning. Every line is impressive, although Ogada doesn’t seem to need to impress. Quiet and grandiose.”
Interview on The Trend on NTV – talking about Footsteps – the song specially composed for the elephants.
