Baayo contains wonderful, haunting, evocative music from deep within Baaba Maal's soul. The initial simplicity of the music belies the complex, underlying rhythyms. Beautiful singing and responses with mainly just a guitar make an unforgettable album.

This seriously good but accessible album features Maal's exquistite voice intermingling with a kora ensemble to produce a rich sound full of delicate harmonies. These are clearly spiritual songs, you can tell that even if you don't speak this Senegalese language.

I saw Baaba Maal many years ago at one or more of the WOMAD festivals in Reading and bought a copy of this album, on cassette, on the strength of those performances. I really liked it from first listening and I'm pleased to finally get my hands on the cd.

One of the best in Senegalese traditional music 4 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Baaba Maal is a complete artist capable of mixing traditional music of Senegal with modern funk and pop melodies -hear recent Nomad Soul, for example-, Baayo is one of the best examples of accurate respect for traditon. A work where the unique talent of this bright star remains with the magic of his voice and the percussion of mbalax, the distinctive rhythm of Senegal. Bada Seck, Baaba Maal's percussionist, brings the perfect feeling together with the sound of the kora. A CD which is a beautiful tribute to their ancestors, the griots. As they say in Wolof language, "Nerna". If you ever have the opportunity to see Maal in a live concert, as I did twice in Dakar, you will realise what a real talent is about. Pure energy! Nothing to do with tasteless, unsubstantial western comercial music.

Title 29 Mar. 2000
By NoelleInAZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm new to world music...thanks to the internet...I heard Baaba Maal's voice on an Ambient CD of various artists and was intrigued. After listening to Amazon's samples and reading the other reviews, I decided to take a chance on this recording. I have to say that it is a shame that American music is so commercial that an artist like this might never have a chance to be heard in the mainstream. You don't need to understand the language to appreciate what is being sung. The strings and percussions (especially the percussion) are excellent. The whole CD is great. I don't know anything about Senegalese artists and their music but I appreciate this one very much and fully intend to explore more. If you like the samples here, buy the CD. You won't regret it.

Sends shivers through your spine 1 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Baayo is by far Baaba Maal's most incredible work. He is truly in his element in this album, expressing his griot upbringing and traditional roots. While some of his other albums venture on pop, Baayo is traditional Senegalese music in the purest sense. His voice will give you chills, and his harmonies with Mansour Seck are spectacular. I have a large collection of African c.d.s, yet I keep coming back to this one. And if you have the chance to see him live in concert, as I have many times, I promise you a breathtaking experience you won't forget.

unbelievable 29 Mar. 2000
By Enrique Jaramillo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
my all time favourite from african music and the best record by Baaba that I know. I have heard this cd at least a thousand time and its magic spell has not fade away. If you want to get into african music this is a must and should be your first choice. .

taste 20 Oct. 2001
By taste - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It is a scandal that people do not know about this man. This is just beautiful music played with a generousity and spirit and skill that leave you gobsmacked. I would like to say something emotional but I'll end up sounding like a bloody hippy. Well worth buying even if you can't eat for a week.
