2006 release. "This, ladies and gentlemen, is Tumi and the Volume, arguably South Africa's most electric performers. The group has managed to create a distinct musical accent that includes blends of samba, swing, hip hop, reggae and poetry that speaks to the unique reality of the South African experience and still relates to the world in that universal way that only beauty can. Think 'The Roots' meets 'Common' by way of South Africa. The band has wowed audiences all over the South Africa, impressed fellow musicians Blackalicious (U.S.A), Positive Black Souls (Senegal), Relax (the Netherlands)and has been frequent invitees to world-class music festivals such as Quart Festival in Norway, North Sea Jazz in Cape Town, Montreal Jazz and played throughout Europe." Includes a 20-page booklet of weird collage art.
