"Thunderous and potent.  Chopteeth's debut CD takes the band from upbeat Swahili lyrics over a South African pulse one second, to
spaghetti Western-inspired instrumentals the next.
True to the political essence at the heart of Fela's music."
Billboard
”Raging guitars and rich, swaggering horns. Propulsive.”
The Boston Globe
“Wonderfully fresh. With absolutely no reservations, this is an outright success."

"First Person" interview with Chopteeth's Michael Shereikis:
"Why do we have music? It’s to sort of hold it down for the dancers. Your job is to get it right. To put a little energy and playfulness into it and keep the dance floor hot."
