Richard Nwamba presents ''the African Diaspora''. In this album we celebrate Africa like never before with major artists and songs of original African decent, living outside of the African continent. 

Latin textures and spices dominate (music from Cuba, Dominican Republic, Brazil), Haunting gypsy-like influence comes from Peru and Cuba with more central African up-tempo ''Soukouss'' elements presented from Haiti and French Antilles.

We hear a rare reggae gem from Barbados and more traditional African songs from Haiti as well. A special and well-rounded album that gives a mere glimpse of the abundant talent that Africa has spawned through its far-flung, but not forgotten, famous children.
