Baaba Maal and band on stage

The traveller

Feeling a lot happier now we’ve got our first short trip of the year in a few weeks booked. Looking forward to feeling some warm rays on my bod.

In the meantime speaking of travels, I did so vicariously by going to a fantastic performance by Baaba Maal and friends including Mansour Seck -  in London promoting his new album The Traveller (Do you see what I did there? Do you see??…).

Through the performance the audience was transported to a Senegal conjured up by beautiful, hauntingly melodic songs such as Tindo Quando, and Kalaajo  and Rassoul powerfully and movingly delivered.





Everyone was on their feet rocking it up like a Fulani to Fulani Rock.



All the musicians on the night were outstanding among others, support act Blick Bassy from Cameroon.


On a completely unrelated note… check out this chooooooooooooon. Don’t know why I haven’t come across Tiken Jah Fakoly before now but I’m glad I did eventually. Check him out on YouTube.
