Baaba Maal

Firin' In Fouta

Setting his traditional Senegalese vocal techniques against a tapestry of modern electronic and pop instrumentation, musical wunderkind Baaba Maal gives us good vibrations with his fifth studio album—a jumping celebration of sounds from the world over. His tribute to the beautiful women of his homeland, "African Woman," shines with Latin rhythms and horns. The rollicking "Swing Yela" pops with hip-hop attitude and a dose of American rap, proving that this globe-trotting jack-of-all-musical-trades can do no wrong.
