Orchestra Baobab - Made in Dakar

 Orchestra Baobab - Made in DakarThis is African music at its finest. Like Cuba’s Buena Vista Social Club, Senegal’s Baobab is a veteran outfit whose sublime sound—soaring vocals, cascading guitar, hypnotic horns and seductive rhythms—transport the listener back to an exotic past. Although singer Youssou N’Dour and Buena Vista’s trombonist Jesus Ramos guest on “Nijaay” and “Colette” respectively, the album’s star is Barthelemy Attisso, whose fluid guitar lines on the rumba “Aline” and the calypso “Bikowa” weave an irresistible charm.
