Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Samite's early instruction from his Grandfather on the traditional flute instilled in him a great love and talent for the music of his people, the Baganda. Away from his native Uganda, Samite repeatedly turns to music, the sounds of his culture, for a sense of home.

Today, Samite looks to children, to their smiles and to the joy that endures despite their suffering all over the world. Children hold our hope for the future, they need a safe and gentle place where they can grow, sing and dance. "Kambu Angels" is a shimmering tribute to a group of young orphaned boys in West Africa being raised in such a place. Like these boys, children everywhere deserve a chance to be a part of creating a more peaceful world.

Samite's music today includes other native instrments including the kalimba (finger piano) and his own voice. It is Samite's voice that drives this album, and draws you in. You might find yourself humming his tunes before long!
It's ironic that Samite's music is an express train to peacefulness, given that so much of his inspiration is drawn from the suffering and separation associated with his being a Ugandan refugee who grew up during Idi Amin's reign. In fact, Samite's brother was killed during that country's struggles. Samite only returned there a few years ago, and much of the music on Kambu Angels is drawn from that experience. It's this undertow of pain that lends even Samite's sweetest, most childlike songs an emotional depth. Singing in his native Lugandan tongue, Samite's songs are like lullabies. He layers his voice into gentle choirs and hymnlike rounds on "Tokido" and "Zenina." He does the same thing with the electric kalimba and percussion with which he accompanies himself, making a hypnotic African minimalism. His instrumentals are equally captivating. The title track is a trancelike piece with cycling kalimba and wood flute blown across the top like an African breeze. --John Diliberto
