Album Review
Reviewed 2007-08-02
Originally from Mauritania, now in Paris, he combines both in a CD that features his warm, smooth, soaring vocals (rooted in African folk) with a hip, but relaxed, European indie rock groove. He also plays a mean guitar. The music is joyful and hopeful, without being sappy and predictable. He wrote all the songs and plays all the instruments on this releaseā€¦some people get all the talent.

*1. Midtempo, relaxed w/sweet vocals and a cool vibe.
2. Midtempo with a tight, sophisticated coolness.
*3. Nicely driving blend of guitar & vocals. Way cool.
4. Slow and delicate at first then stronger w/a powerful edge.
5. Midtempo Euro-rock-ish w/chorus in English.
*6. Upbeat w/a nice beat from perc/strings & a light feeling.
*7. Lightly bouncy strings, sweet and happy.
8. Downtempo w/soaring vocals and a lyrical quality.
9. Relaxed, partially in English, sort of a lazy thing.
10. Mid/upbeat rock w/a hint of funk and a touch of folk.
11. Midtempo acoustic guitar & vocals. Simple but nice.
*12. Midtempo &vaguely anthemic.
