Description
“Luaka Bop tries to look at music without prejudice, without saying, ‘This belongs in this category and this belongs there',” says David Byrne of his indie label. “It’s like spinning the ideal radio dial and hearing interesting stuff coming out of lots of stations." Byrne's own tropical ditty "Fuzzy Freaky" is among the 15 tracks on this greatest hits CD, which also includes Caetano Veloso's "Baby" covered by Os Mutantes, "Keleya" by Moussa Doumbia ("the Malian James Brown"), and much more.

"Listening to this gorgeous compilation … will take you on an immediate holiday of the mind…. It is music that has been blended in the melting pop of modern city life rather than adhering to any rustic authenticity…. New sounds are also well represented by the slinky Brazilian hipsters Moreno + 2 and Californian surrealists Geggy Tah. Despite the breadth of styles and origins, it all hangs together as seamlessly as a languid daydream on a blazing summer’s day. Four stars."—The Telegraph

"Quirky, delightful, and off the beaten path…. A highly recommended collection of very smart and even ingenious music from around the globe for listening and dancing pleasure."—All Music Guide
