Umalali "set for a novel of short stories" - The Fensepost review

None other than Andrew Fenstermaker himself weighed in on the Fensepost review of Umalali: The Garifuna Women's Project. In the piece Fense (as he is known to readers) kept coming back to the intriguing and apt compairson of the women's vocal style to that of the late great Nina Simone. With the well known cultural exchange between the Caribbean and Jazz traditions, Fense's prose is not a far stretch by any means. Read the whole review here.
