The Senegalese band is back with that kick-ass sound of beats, brass, and sass. Afro-Cuban rhythms keep things moving in this tribute to Ndiouga Dieng, one of the original members of the band, who passed away in 2016. Top notch performances make every track a total crank-it-up good thing.|
1. Bright horns, sweetly swaying w/warm vocals.
2. Kora intro, mid/upbeat Afro-Cuban percussion. Sweetly fun.
3. Perc and strings plus vocal harmonies mid/upbeat. Very cool.
4. Fun sway w/a tropical air and a bright, sunny feeling.
5. More relaxed w/kora leading a reflective, low key track.
6. Slow voice and then bright and mid/upbeat w/great vox.
7. Happy and driving right from the start. So good!
8. Sweetly relaxed with a late-night Afro-Cuban feel.
9. Almost a sleepy cha-cha kind of feeling, low-key & good.
10. Trilling kora leads into a mid/upbeat, fun little tune.
