Ancestry In Progress - Disc 1 / Zap Mama Disc - 2
by Zap Mama
Released: Mar 2006
Label: Luaka Bop
Little did Zap Mama know that their 2000 collaboration with the Roots on "Rafiki" would change their direction so much. While their pygmy vocal tricks and a cappella virtuosity are intact, these days it's all about hip-hop. ?uestlove, Erykah Badu, Bahamadia, Common and Talib Kweli make appearances on bass-heavy tracks like "Vivre," "Yelling Away" and "Show Me the Way."
