Celebrated Senegalese musician and United Nations Ambassador Baaba Maal has released a track that will appear in his much anticipated 11th album The Traveller (Marathon Artists). The new recording is scheduled for release on January 15th, 2016.
The Traveller was recorded in both London and Senegal and was produced by Johan Hugo from The Very Best. The album includes Winston Marshall of Mumford & Sons, who met Baaba Maal at his annual music festival ‘Blues Du Fleuve’ in Fouta, Northern Senegal.
The Traveller contains a mix of West African roots and more contemporary electronic influences all woven together at varying tempos.
