Arrested Development: Zingalamaduni (1994)

arrested development zingBy Scott Goldfine

Arrested Development, last year’s Grammy winner for Best New Artist, proves worthy of that honor with their delightful sophomore spin “Zingalamaduni,” which means beehive of culture in Swahili. Leader Speech’s singsong rap style paces the six-member, multigender group through a thoughtful set of spiritually and socially enlightened songs that seduce the eardrums and soothe the soul.
