Amazingly Awesome

"Buy pure chance I was introduced to this album,back in 1995(I think).I met up with a guy,Mark was his name,he had the greatest job in the world,ever.He was in Zimbabwe,looking into signing new artists for Island Records and as fate has it's ways he came and stayed with us at a backpackers lodge where I was working.
Heaven Lodge Chimanimani.No place on the earth I have ever been
can compare to the Chimanimani Mountains,living and working in such paradise was uncomprehendible,now that I look back at it all. Along came Mark with a few cassettes of his favourite African
musicians,paradise became utopia!!Baaba Maal was introduced to
Chimanimani.Music like I had never heard,in a language I did not
understand it just blew me away,the depth,the sheer feeling of Baaba's soul poors out at you in uncontrollable bliss.Words will never describe what a brilliant musician/singer Baaba Maal is.
He could be singing me into hell and beyond,I would know no different and LOVE every second of it.Go Baaba I thank you,I also thank Mark without him I would never have been introduced
to the music that now carries me around the World.Ilost the cassette Mark gave me,bought another in Johanessburg'that also went to someone else,bought it on CD and left it with a mate and will carry on buying and conveniently
leaving it where ever I can,Amazingly Awesome,what else can I say?
Thank You
All the best
You will be slack-jawed

"Living in a southern US city, the musical tastes of my friends tend to the provincial (Shania Twain, Hank Williams I, II or III, and the sound of NASCAR engines roaring), so I have become somewhat a proselyte for the infectious music of west Africa, especially mbalax from Senegal and especially Baaba Maal. There is not a single person I have played this album, my all time favorite, for, who has not enjoyed it at the least or came back to me slack jawed and said something to the effect of "what is this, it's awesome." The drumming and rhythm will shake you to your roots."
The Best of Baaba Maal (so far!)

"Baaba Maal is by far the most exciting musician writing and performing in Senegal. His music, deeply rooted in the culture that he cherishes, translates powerfully across cultures. If you ever get a chance to see him perform - don't miss it!"
