  • Bel Canto: The Best of the Genidia Years [Sterns Africa, 2007] ***

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Bameli Soy [Shanachie, 1991]
Rochereau's breathy ex hangs with some players ("Faux Pas") **

Bel Canto: The Best of the Genidia Years [Sterns Africa, 2007]
1982-'87 versions of Rochereau's Afrisa International accommodate his wife's sweet, small soprano ("Nazali Mwasi," "Contre Ma Volonte"). ***
