More lively Afro-Celt music from Baka Beyond. This album is upbeat and joyous, and it makes me feel happy whenever I listen to it. If you enjoy previous Baka albums, I highly recommend adding East to West to your collection. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Martin Cradick is the guitarist for the Australian group, Outback.
