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.
