Smoke Notes

Youssou N'Dour music is pan-African yet his career was bound to lead to a form of musical expression that has become universal: Reggae. He is well aware of the political import of reggae, the music-genre directly linked to Rastafarianism:

"From Brazil to Australia and even in Bombay / Africans, Indians and the Portuguese / they love the one-drop in the roots of reggae..." sings Youssou N'Dour today.

Youssou N'Dour could have fallen into the trap of a flat tribute to Bob Marley, but instead he chose to take a look at himself in the reggae mirror. As a result there are new songs and new readings of past hits like the old "Pitche Me", taken from 'Immigrés' (1986).

With brass, percussion, bass and guitar lines all from Jamaican sources - the album was recorded at Kingston's Tuff Gong studios with Dean Fraser on saxophone, Michael Fletcher on "dancehall" bass and Earl "Chinna" Smith on guitar.

Tracks:
1. Marley
2. Medina
3. Joker
4. Bololene
5. Bamba
6. Black Woman
7. Survie
8. Africa Dream Again
9. Diarr Diarr
10. Don't Walk Away
11. Bagn Len
12. Leteuma
13. Pitch Me
