Baaba Maal - "Television"

Tagged with: Baaba Maal Television Sabina Sciubba Didi Gutman Palm Brazilian Girls

This might well upset the purists but Baaba Maal has always been adventurous and here he brings in a strong pop element to a Senegalese core heavily featuring  Sabina Sciubba and Didi Gutman from the New York electronica outfit the Brazilian Girls. This is his first new release for about 8 years and my only real gripe would be that I’d love to hear even more of the great man featured. I think maybe the purists will retreat to the traditional albums like ‘Missing You’ but hopefully this release will bring in a whole new audience who will also go on to savour his back catalogue. I love it.  (Graham Radley)
