Originally released on Crammed in 1991, Zap Mama’s a cappella debut album has become a classic, and influenced hosts of vocalists and musicians around the world.This was the acclaimed debut album by the famous Zaps, five young women of Congolese/Belgian origin who conquered the world with their joyous a cappella mix of Pygmy music, human beatbox sounds, Central African or Arabic pop tunes, ragamuffin under Zairian influence, Afro-Cuban rhythms, and a touch of soul & gospel... Zap Mama's origins, message and musical choices embodied and glorified the virtues of cultural mix and inter-racialism. The beauty and freshness of their vocal harmonies, their entertaining, humorous & energetic stage show generated tremendous enthusiasm all around Europe and the USA (where this record was the second best-selling world music album of 93, according to Billboard).
