Orchestra Beobab - Papa Ndiaye

Genre: world

This is fairly typical of Senegalese popular music. It can sound plodding: the bass can dominate, but tunelessly, and the backing group can sound a bit bored. If it’s your introduction to world music, and you don’t see what people find in it, that might be why. On a good system everything gains life and vitality, the bass is less dominant and more tuneful and the vocals, including the backing group, are much more engaging and interesting to listen to.
