Nuru Kane's many-sided music is part-Moroccan, part-Senegalese, part-blues, part-whatever else he fancies throwing into the mix - on this album he alternately adds some reggae heat on "Issoire", a hypnotic gnawa groove on "Sadye", and then a flicker of Spaniard gypsy spice on "Corriendo". His previous Riverboat records release, 'Sigil', was a resounding success and earned him a well-deserved nomination for a BBC 3 Award.
Born in Senegal's hustling bustling capital city Dakar, Nuru is heavily influenced by gnawa, the Moroccan trance-like spiritual music that seals his signature style - what he coins Baye Fall Gnawa. The guimbri is a three-stringed lute played in the gnawa tradition, and Nuru can be heard playing the instrument on the track "Bambala".
