Senegal 70
Emmylou Harris - Wrecking Ball


The music of each West African country is strikingly different and while I love the Funk of Benin, the Manding of Mali, and highlife of Ghana, for me best of - most beguiling of all - is Senegalese music. It's hypnotic with almost Islamic singing married to sinuous guitar. This compilation is great but it's worth checking anything out by Orchestre Baobab or Star Band de Dakar.
And a fresh grab - this sounds wonderful from Emmylou. Just wish she would re-release Stumble Into Grace.

Forgot to add this to Senegal 70 - from the great booklet, one of the best names men in music (he's produced several records I have in fact)
