Some thirty odd years, twenty recordings, and numerous personnel changes since their founding, Sweet Honey In The Rock remains as intoxicating, buoyant, inventive, and fervent on their Appleseed debut as anytime in their storied career.

Effortlessly blending world musics, Experience...101 is a positively delightful, eighteen song children's CD espousing respect, reading, rhyming, and rhythming. With a 16-page booklet created to look like a school composition notebook, the lyrics and comments are matched up in print with the Adinkra symbols used in Ghana, West Africa, to indicate wisdom, strength, unity, good fortune, harmony and other emotions crucial to leading a meaningful life. For educators, students, and parents alike.
