Description

Senegalese singer/songwriter Nuru Kane's music, like the Baye Fall clothes he wears, is a patchwork. 'Exile' charts his experiences living in Europe, far from his homeland. Streams of influence from his life in France, his trips to North Africa and his time in urban London run deep throughout his sound. Here, his resonant Moroccan guimbri, along with guitars, kora and calabash, bounce and colour his luxurious deep singing voice.

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".
