After their successful showcase at Womex 2010, Senegalese singer Malick Pathé Sow and his group are preparing their summer tour with concerts at the renowned Rainforest Festival in Malaysia, and festivals in France and Belgium, presenting their latest CD.
“Maayo Men” captures all the warmth, beauty and authenticity of Senegalese music. It pays tribute to the Laawbe, instrument makers and musicians who have traditionally taken responsibility for the oral transmission of knowledge between generations.
Malick’s CD aims to capture some of this rich oral tradition, painting a vivid picture of the everyday life of the Fula people.
Malick’s vocal melodies will be served with a spicy instrumental mix cooked up by his fellow musicians playing the guitar, the hoddu, the kora and percussion/calabash.
