Interpreter: Baaba Maal
Label: Palm
Location: Senegal

The hypnotic voice of Baba Maal shines out on his first release since 2001. With the faintest tinge of studio technology overlaying the acoustic intimacy of the album, it’s a contemporary sounding collection which sees contributions from the Brazilian Girls (in fact a duo from New York) and a British co-writer.
