Synopsis :

The Classic Freewheeling Look at Race Relations Through the Ages

Mumbo Jumbo is Ishmael Reed's brilliantly satiric deconstruction of Western civilization, a racy and uproarious commentary on our society. In it, Reed, one of our preeminent African-American authors, mixes portraits of historical figures and fictional characters with sound bites on subjects ranging from ragtime to Greek philosophy. Cited by literary critic Harold Bloom as one of the five hundred most significant books in the Western canon, Mumbo Jumbo is a trenchant and often biting look at black-white relations throughout history, from a keen observer of our culture.


Jazz, voodoo, the Cotton Club, gangster, bootleggers, black mysticism, it's a kaleidoscopic view of Harlem in the 1920s. Dave Adams (Mojo) plays the voodoo detective, Papa LaBas. In 3D sound, with a cast of thirty actors: Black, White, Chinese, Latino, African, Haitian, you name it. Awesome with headphones. 2.5 hours. 2CDs
