"Lusafrica presents a showcase of fifty tracks of the best in Ivorian music to celebrate the country's fiftieth anniversary of Independence. All the great names are represented -- from Jimmy Hyacinthe, Djinns Music and Ernesto Djedje to Aicha Kone, Meiway and Magic System. Also featured are Alpha Blondy and Tiken Jah Fakoly -- two powerhouse reggae artists that have been a major Ivorian contribution to modern African music. The set has only one track per artist though, so there is plenty of room for the lesser known acts to shine on this superb intro to one of West Africa's most musical nations. The set is beautifully packaged and illustrated."
