London, England – Missing You….Mi Yeewnii is the new album by Senegalese singer Baaba Maal. It sees Baaba Maal focusing on the acoustic, poetic side of his heritage.
The original recording sessions for Missing You used a mobile studio based in Toubab Dialaw, Senegal and took place outdoors after dark which accounts for the clicking of crickets which can heard throughout the album. The recording continued at Real World Studios in Wiltshire and the album was mixed at Abbey Road and Real World.
Missing You….Mi Yeewnii, is based around a live ensemble approach, laid back intensity and 11 great tunes.
This approach will be reflected in this April’s live shows when Baaba will tour the U.K. with an acoustic group giving audiences a chance to experience the pure, vital energy of one of the world’s most powerful performers in unique and intimate settings. This will be followed by a big London show in the summer featuring the no holds barred aural and visual spectacle of the full strength Daande Lenol.
