1999 release. Dakar: Africa's most vibrant city; hustling, bustling, dusty streets; searing heat and brilliant colors; the surreal juxtaposition of heaving markets and shanties with fancy restaurants and plush nightclubs; a metropolis positively teeming with young musicians boasting equal measures of attitude and talent. "Boul falé," they say: "Never mind." It's the terse expression of a Senegalese generation that's fed up with its lot and determined to be heard. Never mind -- music like this will be heard loud and clear. Includes tracks by Assane Ndiaye & le Raam Daan; Assane Mboup & le Mbouba Dialy; Ousmane Seck & le Raam Daan, Marie Ngoné Ndione; Fallou Dieng & le DLC; Gelongal; Bada Seck; Tata & Salaam Band; Mati Thiam Dogo; Fatou Guewel & Sope Noreyni; Alioune Kassé & Kassé Stars; Lemzo Diamono; and Assane Ndiaye, Thione Seck & le Raam Daan.
