2000 release. Senegal's Falou Dieng is Youssou N'Dour's protégé and perhaps his successor. Fallou hasn't, however, followed Youssou on his quest to find global "crossover" success?not if that means diluting his full-strength mbalax. In Fallou's music the tama drum cuts a dizzying asymetrical swathe across the beat and the sabar mesmerizes with its insistent ratatata-tat, tat-tat. Guitars and horns dart around and through the relentless polyrhythms, contrasting exquisitely with Fallou's supple, lyrical voice.
