Review

One of Zimmer's finest scores and is the predecessor of The Lion King. A beautiful melody of African voices blended into seamless harmonies. It would be difficult to use in most situations, except for as background to vast plains and untamed, barren countryside. Perfect if the characters are journeying through darkest Africa however.
