Product Description

Product Description

This second offering from Senegal's majestic, Cheikh Lo was produced by Youssou N'Dour and Nick Gold at Studio Xippi in Dakar and sees Lo extend the vibe of his debut, "Ne la Thiass". The airy, uplifting, acoustic sound is propelled along by rippling sabar and tama drums and on Bambay Gueej he boosts his horn section to feature the tenor sax and arrangements of former James Brown side-man Pee Wee Ellis. As a Baye Fall, Cheikh is a conscious, religious man and his lyrics reflect his concerns. While "M'Beddemi" deals with homelessness, "N'Dox" and "N'Jarinu Garab" focus on Man's relationship to nature. There's a chemistry at work on this album that ensures the open spirit of collaboration never detracts from the overall feel. Bambay Gueej, tips a respectful nod to Fela's afro beat while Orquesta Aragon's mercurial flautist Richard Egues and the Afro Cuban All Stars stamp the sound of Cuba on "M'Beddemi" and "N'Jarinu Garab". Malian label mate, Oumou Sangare sings a beautiful duet on haunting "Bobo-Dioulasso" and as this album draws to a close you just want to press Play again. --Paul Bradshaw

Format: Audio CD
A vey beautiful and spiritually charged cd. Chheik Lo has the ability to absorb a range of musical influences (Cuban, Senegalese, Nigerian, funk, reggae)and recreate them as a unique, authentic and completely convincing personal style. The album is graced with the presence of Pee Wee Ellis (ex James Brown and Van Morrisson) and Oumou Sangare, the leading female singer from Mali. Pee Wee Ellis provides crisp funky arrangements a la JB and some lovely sax solos, and Sangare contributes her haunting vocals to one track.

I also reviewed the first album; and this one does not disappoint either. The addition of Pee Wee Ellis and chums does Cheikh Lo no disservice and we can see him stretched over every conceivable style. The title track is sublime funk with Lo's trademark excellent vocals. The duet with Oumou Sangaré is supremely executed and the whole album has a sophistication and musicality that takes some beating. This artist is probably one of the best popular musicians I know from any country and this album emphatically rubber stamps my hopes. Buy it, and pray for the release of his next album.
