Youssou N'Dour - Chimes of Freedom

Genre: world

A cover of a Bob Dylan song but thoroughly ‘Senegalised’ into N’Dour’s characteristic style. Distinctive wood-block percussion clicks can sound vague and ill-defined where they should be a crucial part of the piece. Also the afrobeat rhythm which runs through most of the track can, oddly, seem sluggish and drag the piece down rather than driving it along as it clearly does on a properly set up system. Listen right to the end for the real payoff!
