Repertoire 2000 (F)"Effectivement, pendant que le monde s’agite autour de productions africaines s’éloignant de plus en plus des traditions pour se ressembler de plus en plus entre elles, SWP Records sort tranquillement, discrètement, des disques qui s’imposent d’emblée comme des productions les plus importantes pour entrer au coeur des musiques africaines."  "In actual fact, whilst the world gets excited about African productions that are moving further and further away from the traditions and as a result sound more and more alike, SWP Records releases discs quietly, discretly, which are immediately convincing as the most important productions enabling one to grasp the essence of African music."
