Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A collaboration between a Senegalese-French chanteuse and a Spanish-French guitarist may seem unlikely at face value, but the two actually have quite a bit in common. Both traditions share North African roots -- Senegal through its centuries-old link with Islam and Spain via an indelible Moorish tinge that still permeates the nation’s culture despite the medieval re-conquest of Granada. Patrice Larose’s playing is neat-fingered and unassuming yet rhythmically unfettered, his round-toned, slightly buzzy acoustic guitar makes quicksilver runs between melodic contexts, time-signatures and ports of call. Julia Sarr’s silky vocals, while true to her ancestry, are hard to pigeon-hole; she is obviously an open-eared world citizen whose musical vocabulary reflects a life-long immersion in everything from R&B ballads to West African praise-singing. The duo hardly breaks a sweat while shifting between Brazilian bossa nova, French chanson, Spanish flamenco and the mbalax invented by Senegalese superstar Youssou N’Dour, who sits in on the title track and was the force behind their 2005 Carnegie Hall debut. The album is relaxed and lushly beautiful -- one of those rare must-haves that will never disappoint or grow stale. --Christina Roden

I know Julia Sarr through a friend and stayed with her in Paris for a short while. She is as wonderful a person on the outside as she is on the inside - and her voice is pure magic! Who knew that Senegalese rythym could blend so well with Flamenco guitar? It's a great work by two wonderful and talented people, and my hat goes off to them!

Combine a gorgeous, full-throated voice from Senegal with a French flamenco guitar player and it turns out that you get a warm, musically complex blend of styles that sound like they were made for each other. Sarr's voice has a lot of range, and Larose's guitar work is outstanding. Listen especially for "Nmala DJure," which is the song that got me to buy the album, and for a haunting duet with Youssou N'Dour.
