Check out the Italinan newspaper Il Manifesto‘s review of ReCreation:

“Brucia che è un piacere sul corpo di Marie Daulne la poliritmia africana, essenza fondante del gruppo vocale a cappella Zap Mama che si trasforma a immagine e somiglianza della leader e vocalist afro-belga, e spruzza ritmo senza rinunciare al soffio creativo del soul, e alle più recenti commistioni del sound urbano afroamericano, passando per il campionario delle mutazioni in atto delle sonorità brasiliane e il giusto tributo alle radici del samba, magnificamente incarnate dalla tromba di Trumpetisto di Miami nella frizzante Hello to Mama, e della bossanova. Emozionante incontrare nello stesso contesto le Vibrations africane e le dilatazioni urbane di The Way You Are nel duetto con Bilal, il coro delle vecchie compagne, Silvie Nawasadio e Sabine Kabongo, Singing Sisters, o Togetherness, o la chiccheria di Vincent Cassell, inedito, (Paroles, paroles, e non, non, non), nonché l’ensemble di strumenti e artisti di African Diamond con il piedistallo dovuto a un gigante come Tony Allen. Il messaggio sta tutto lì: ascoltare la propria anima, ricreandosi. In questi tempi difficili. (g.d.f.)”
