Abdou Diop was born and raised in Kolda, a small town in the Casamance region of southern Senegal, but since the mid-1990s, the singer and songwriter has been based in the cosmopolitan Senegalese capital, Dakar, where he is treasured as a champion of Pulaar and Manding musical and cultural traditions. On this, his second album, Abdou Diop and his musicians blend acoustic and electric guitars with traditional instruments such as the hoddu (an ancestor of the banjo), the wooden Pulaar flute, tama drums and calabashes for songs about love of the land, violence in the city, and the clash of traditional and modern ways of life.
