The Rough Guide to the Music of Senegal


Among the fabled sounds of West Africa, Senegal is a land of musical giants. This Rough Guide includes a roll call of the legends; Baaba Maal, Cheikh Lo, Orchestra Baobab, Ismael Lo and a young Youssou N'Dour all feature alongside contemporary sounds from the rootsy kora of griot Diabhel Cissoko to the cutting edge Sister Fa.

Bonus CD: Daby Balde - 'Introducing Daby Balde'. Daby Balde is one of Senegal's best-kept musical secrets, long celebrated at home and now exploding on to the international scene. His stunning arrangements are based on his Fula traditions from the south of the country and feature the fiddle, accordion and flute alongside the more familiar West African sound of the kora, acoustic guitar and percussion. With strikingly rich and beautiful melodies, captivating vocals and a repertoire that ranges from euphoric to melancholic, Daby Balde is a West African star on the rise.
