Special budget collection from the famed Senegalese singer who has dubbed the genre of his music as ''mbalax'', an ancient word that is used by West African griots who keep tribal stories alive and characterized by the beat of the mbung mbung drum. N'dour has transformed this roots music into a brilliant postmodern pop, characterized by infectious dance beats coupled with politically conscious poetry and a voice to warm the hearts of the angels..

Specialist in All Styles
4.6 out of 5 stars with 60 reviews
The reissue of this Dakar band's 1982 world music classic PIRATES CHOICE earlier this year, was a breakout success in the UK, Europe and the U.S. So much so, in fact, that the response sparked a reunion, a tour, and a return to the studio to record SPECIALIST IN ALL STYLES, the group's first new album in 15 years. Their signature style became a landmark in modern Senegalese music by integrating Afro-Cuban rhythms with the local Wolof and Mandinka traditions, resulting in an easy going groove

He was introduced to most of the world from the placement of 'Everything (Is Never Quite Enough)' on the motion picture soundtrack of 'The Thomas Crown Affair'. His Africanized version of Talking Heads' ''Once In A Lifetime'' (titled here ''Defaal Lu Wor'') brings a fresh alternate perspective of the pop classic that even David Byrne is surely proud of. His voice sounds like Eddy Grant if he were from Africa. This is the Senegalese guitarist's second album originally released in 1998. Quite

This second album (but first US release) from the senegalese singer-songwriter El Hadj N'Diaye El Hadj N'Diaye embarks on a nervy strategy for his internationally released second album. Senegal's searing signature mbalax rhythm takes a backseat to meditative tempos and a guitar-rock ambience seldom associated with African releases. Even more riskily, the focus is fixed on N'Diaye's voice and thus the Wolof-language poetry whose meaning is closed to the majority of listeners. But Xel is a solid

The band's name is taken from a Bambara word that means ''to walk,'' but Tama's engaging Afro-pop mix is far more likely to inspire dancing. The group is built around a central trio consisting of Mali's Toumani Diakite on kora (a type of West African harp), English producer/guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Sam Mills, and percussionist Djanuno Dabo, who hails from Guinea-Bissau. The three met when sitting in with Bengali performer Paban Das Baul, and they found one another so immediately

From Senegal to Setesdal
4.6 out of 5 stars with 267 reviews
From Senegal to Setesdal combines Nordic cool and African warmth in a unique collaboration. Norwegian vocalist Kirsten Braten Berg and African musicians Solo Cissokho and Kouame Sereba blend their traditions in a fresh yet timeless sound that ranges from folk songs to fiddle tunes to lullabies. Though the Norwegian sound predominates, enough African spice remains to make From Senegal to Setesdal an unstudied hybrid. ~ Heather Phares, All Music Guide Born of a chance backstage meeting, From

If you are one of those folks who wish that the traditional sounds of Senegalese music were more dominant in the work of Baaba Maal, here's your opportunity to enjoy those elements more fully. Kaouding Cissoko has been the Daande Lenol band's kora player for a long time and more recently provided an essential ingredient in the recordings of Afro Celt Sound System. Here he stands out front on an album of bright, poppy tunes, many with the subtle Latin groove so essential to the Senegalese pop
