Heaven Lodge Chimanimani.No place on the earth I have ever been
can compare to the Chimanimani Mountains,living and working in such paradise was uncomprehendible,now that I look back at it all.
Along came Mark with a few cassettes of his favourite African
musicians,paradise became utopia!!Baaba Maal was introduced to
Chimanimani.Music like I had never heard,in a language I did not
understand it just blew me away,the depth,the sheer feeling of Baaba's soul poors out at you in uncontrollable bliss.Words will never describe what a brilliant musician/singer Baaba Maal is.
He could be singing me into hell and beyond,I would know no different and LOVE every second of it.Go Baaba I thank you,I also thank Mark without him I would never have been introduced
to the music that now carries me around the World.
Ilost the cassette Mark gave me,bought another in Johanessburg'that also went to someone else,bought it on CD and left it with a mate and will carry on buying and conveniently
leaving it where ever I can,Amazingly Awesome,what else can I say?
All the best
It is Maal like I never heard him before. He seems to be lost in his own music; really enjoying himself and and his work with other muscians.
Unfortunately, my CD was scratched when it arrived. I still listen to it. Nothing is keeping me from Baaba Maal.
Firin is different for me. I have listened to others of his music. This is more infused with jazz.
If you have a chance to see these guys live, DO NOT MISS IT. Also, SF Rhythm Collective that opened for them rocked. Good to see the guys up on da stage!

It is clear from listening to Baaba Maal that he is what I would term a "musical sponge." That is, you can hear the influence of so many different types of music in his... Read morePublished on December 3, 1998
