"Verité d'Afrique is the nineteenth album of Pierre Akendengué's long and distinguished career. Released in Europe in 2008, the album was partly recorded in a shanty town in Libreville, Gabon and the remaining tracks were finished up in Paris, in the Lusafrica studios. While continuing to mine a traditional African vein, Akendengué also branches out in new musical directions, working with Cape Verdean producer Nado Andrade (best known for his role as pianist and musical director to Cesaria Evora), and even delving into reggae. However to please his fans, Akendengué also slips in an old favorite, 'Considérable,' amongst his new material. Originally written in 1972, the song's lyrics about pan-African unity remain as topical as ever."
