Synopsis

Album Description
He was introduced to most of the world from the placement of 'Everything (Is Never Quite Enough)' on the motion picture soundtrack of 'The Thomas Crown Affair'. His Africanized version of Talking Heads' "Once In A Lifetime" (titled here "Defaal Lu Wor") brings a fresh alternate perspective of the pop classic that even David Byrne is surely proud of. His voice sounds like Eddy Grant if he were from Africa. This is the Senegalese guitarist's second album originally released in 1998. Quite simply, this is just one of those records that you can't stop listening to...it's that good. A new listening adventure awaits with every track that plays.

"I heard of Wasis Diop when I saw the movie "The Thomas Corwn affair" and it was love at "first hear" from then. Toxu is a bright exmaple of Wasis is all made of. Perfect for a peaceful evening sitting on your patio with a cold one or great for the road. Strong african character and powerful vocals will just melt you! Believe me! Highly recommend to world music fans!! You wont go wrong with Toxu. My favorite tracks are "After dreaming" and of course "Everyhting" (TCA track!)..."

"Listen to "everything" a couple of times - you will be hooked. An outstanding album."
It's not "world music" it's Wasis Diop music.
