Artist of the week

Baaba Maal – “Fanta”

Baaba Maal is a Senegalese singer and guitarist. This track “Fanta” (“Spirits of the River”) is an ancient tale about a beautiful woman, a spirit of the river, who proves irresistable to men. It’s so beautiful to listen to music in foreign languages, because you are given the opportunity to investigate the underlying meaning of the song through the music and it solely.  Its progression, its timbre, its mood, all tell a story, and you are the author (of course until you find a translator :p). Anyway, fulljoy this record from a world renowned African musician. Bless up!
