"Wired" Magazine review of "Bridges:"
"SoVoSó is a stunning sextet whose a cappella blends jazz, gospel, and
world rhythms with a strong Afro-Latin bias. From gentle, hymn like
ballads to driving grooves, SoVoSó dishes up collective creativity and
Serengeti rhythms, New Orleans style funk, Jamaican reggae
dubs..."Bridges" spans the musical globe, transporting the listener
across traditional cultures to a contemporary, one-village world of
human harmony. Offering up a danceable tribal beat one minute and a
soulful ballad the next, this all-original, genre-blending pop
collection includes gospel-flavored R&B, rock and soul ballads, jazz
riffs and spoken word poetry over African rhythms. With titles like
"Big Family," "Precious," "For I Am The Moon," "New Groove," "Charity,"
"Build A Bridge," and "Say," (a remix), SoVoSó forges thoughtful lyrical
territory, from love songs to anthems calling us toward our universal
humanity, all rendered in world-class musicianship through the
fundamentally human instrument - the voice. SoVoSó's latest CD confirms
their reputation as of the most innovative a cappella groups on the
planet. "Bridges" clearly places SoVoSó on the map at the cutting edge
of world-soul-beat music.
