Rough Trade
...The 16 months of intense work put into this album are very audible. For us, "Aha!" is the best album Jobarteh Kunda has put out by far. A comparison is very hard to make though, as the lineup has changed heavily in the last years, and with it the musical direction. However, the music on "Aha!" is very fresh and contagious. A great evolution, and an amazing album!

Jobarteh Kunda cds - Bibiafric
On their second album ALI HEJA, the group takes a great leap forward with a couple of
personnel changes... a true late-20th century African sound... - very professional now; not
so experimental as before.(...) the group vocals (...) are truly wonderful (...). This is a band to watch out for!
Süddeutsche Zeitung:“African Worldmusic at its very best!”

Aha! - Mit ihrem dritten Album gleichen Namens verankern sich Jobarteh Kunda felsenfest in der Weltmusik-Szene. Denn nachdem sie sich in jahrelanger Vorarbeit ihre Sporen verdient haben, unter anderem mit euphorischen Kritiken zu ihrem Album "Ali-Heja" u. a. in der Süddeutschen Zeitung, Jazzthetik, Blue Rhythm und Folker und je einer Nominierung für den BBC-Award 2005 und den deutschen Weltmusikpreis 2006, ziehen sie sich ganze 16 Monate ins Studio zurück, um an "Aha!" zu feilen.
