Product Description & Reviews

If Youssou N'Dour represents the sophisticated urban edge of Senegal, electric and energetic, then Cheikh Lô is the more organic, spiritual side. Né La Thiass (which was produced by N'Dour) is a remarkable album, dreamy without ever floating away, its debts to Latin rhythms and Senegalese mbalax evident but subtle. Mostly this is the record of Lô, the writer and singer, the warmth of his voice shining through on every track--most particularly the title cut and the gorgeous "Guiss Guiss." It's music of the heart and an emotional reflection of Lô's commitment to his Massamba and Islam. The drums are the grounding rhythm while the melodies and voice soar. This album is strong enough evidence to confidently say that a new African star is born. --Chris Nickson
