CD Reviews

Groove.. and then groove some more

"The first song I heard off this CD was Exodus, and I bought the CD the next day. Every time I've played it at a party someone asks me about it. It's really fantastic -- a mixture of rap, hip-hop, and Senegalese music. Despite my high-school (and, sadly, college) French, I still don't understand most of their lyrics, but the music is so great it doesn't matter (and I'm a big lyrics person, so that says a lot).

Best picks: Exodus, Esperanza, Number One, Babylone, Le Cycle. All great and groovy in their own way.

Highly highly recommend. I could listen to this every day. And sometimes I do."
Wake up to real rap fellows!

"Its surprising that i have to be the first one to review this group/album. I will keep it short. I have a keen interest in French rap, and this one is among the best in recent years. the title track is a reminder of how rap/hip hop has some rare gems in French speaking Africa. They (Daara J) have also joined hands with some of the best bands/singers in Africa,namely, Rokia Traore and Serigne` M baye ( lead rapper of the famed hip hop group Disiz La Peste). Please, please wake up! I do not understand French Rap; nor do I follow the lyrics of American rap (much of it is nonsense anyways!). After buying this album if anyone is interested in exploring French rap check out the following bands: Saian Supa Crew, Akhenaton, Doc Gyneco, NTM, Disiz La Peste, 113, MC Solaar, Serigne` M baye. If hip/hop is about passion, the beats, the scratches, smooth rhymes, then look no further than French hip/hop. You'll enjoy it, as long as you as a passion for global music. You can start your collection with this one."
A refreshing change!

"As a few others, I heard Daara J's "Boomerang" in the interview on NPR a few weeks back. I was so taken by the interview and the music, I went on-line right away and ordered the CD. With my "limited" knowledge of French and Spanish, I was able to understand some of the words which are very powerful and moving, their native Senegalese Wolof is just as beautiful. What else can I say, but I love it and will keep my eyes and ears open for more to come from these very talented young men.
