nominated by Gordon Stears
'Every record they make is fresh and surprising, and their live shows are wonderful. In 2001 their Soul Makassar CD was my favourite and I saw them do two great gigs.'

A.G.Anderson:
'Superb musicians playing enjoyable music'

Caroline:
'Tarika rocks! I love the music!'

Sally Alexander:
'Soul Makassar is my favourite CD of 2001'

Glinnes Hulden:
'They seem to have all the world's music in theirs, yet I know it comes from their own real traditions. Ever since I heard their Son Egal record I wanted to go to Madagascar. I finally got there last May and it was the best experience of my life.'
