Senegalese singer Baaba Maal's latest album is the result of a merging of cultures and was a collective effort on the part of several well-known British producers (including Brian Eno) as well as a range of musical collaborators. NOMAD SOUL is an explosion of joyous sound, with a tendency to emphasize the songs' melodies and vocal harmonies rather than their rhythms and beats, which Maal keeps understated compared to many African musical traditions. A mix of Senegalese and English vocals adds to the sense of multi-cultural exploration; "Souka Nayo (I Will Follow You)," has strong Celtic influences, which are more subtle on "Cherie," and the lovely, acoustic "Koni." Maal's breath-taking vocals take center stage on one song after another, yet they seem to be energized and held aloft by the music and voices of his collaborators.
Dirty Linen (4-5/99, p.48) - "...one remembers, the emotional power that Maal wields longer than the insensitivity of some beats. In the end, the voice wins out..."
