On any given day or night in recent years, you could turn on a radio or TV in Senegal and hear at least one of the songs on this new compilation. The artists are generally not the international stars that Americans tend to associate with Senegalese music, but they all have their home-country fans and their own styles. There's more to contemporary Senegalese music than the Afro-salsa of Orchestra Baobab and the drum-driven mbalax made famous by Youssou N'Dour, not to mention the Senegalese take on hip-hop. Many of today's pop artists tap into various roots in the fertile soil of Senegalese culture; others stand apart and draw what they like from near and far. Les Frères Guissé have championed a lean, acoustic sound for two decades and are now more popular than ever in Senegal. The indomitable Ablaye Ndiaye Thiossane had his first radio hit in 1966 and is currently enjoying an extraordinary comeback with his classic sound. A new generation of artists also rides the airwaves, such as Queen Biz, with her wry commentary on personal and social mores, and Wally B. Seck, one of the most charming young romantic singers on the scene. Working with media partners ZIK FM and SEN TV, Senegalese record producer Ibrahima Sylla compiled the tracks on these two CDs.
