Product Description

Artist: Issa Bagayogo

Malian singer/songwriter Issa Bagayogo is keenly aware of the rich traditions of his homeland. In addition to his characteristic velvety smooth vocals, he plays the kamele n'goni, a regional instrument that resembles a six-string lute. But Bagayogo is also a modern fellow; a pioneer in a genre that's been dubbed Afro-electro. On TIMBUKTU, Bagayogo combines his roots-based acoustic textures with the sounds of electronic dance music. The result is one of the most distinctive and personal blends of traditional West African and modern electronica you will find, in or out of Africa
