Youssou N´Dour - Dakar-Kingston - 2010


Youssou N´Dour, one of the most well-known Senegalese singers and composers worldwide, surprises us in 2010 with Dakar-Kingston. A self-confessed admirer of Bob Marley, he has recorded revisions of old and recent songs to the rhythm of reggae, resulting in surprising work if we take into account that Youssou is the master of mbalax music. In fact, the emblematic rhythm of the island of Jamaica has a similar origin to the Senegalese mbalax, if we take into account the rhythms carried by the African population forced to travel.

Produced by Marley's old friend and Wailers member Tyrone Downie, Youssou N'Dour is surrounded by the best: Earl "China" Smith on guitar, Patrice Bart-Williams and singer Ayo, legendary reggae band Morgan Heritage. , and Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) composing the first theme titled "Marley".

Temenik Electric - Ouesh Hada? - 2013


From the vibrant multicultural melting pot of Marseille comes Temenik Electric's debut album, Ouesh Hada? (2013), an exquisite excursion through Arab rock that extends to both sides of the Mediterranean. The jagged electric guitars and rock rhythms of songs like "Hel El Bab" and "Arteni Boussa" ring with the energy of Led Zeppelin or U2, evoking the spirit of agitation of Rachid Taha or Cheikha Rimitti. But the infectious pop melodies and electro-rock beats are just one element of a splendid hybridity that also picks up traditional gnawa, chaabi, raï rhythms and influences from all over the Maghreb with hypnotically played ouds and other instrumentation.

Temenik Electric's Arab rock is not a copy of the Anglo-American formats. The rock of Temenik Electric, fronted by singer-songwriter Mehdi Haddjeri, comes from a very different place, crafting a sound that is essentially rooted in the spirit of North Africa but takes the language of Western rock music and dynamically absorbs the continuous lineage of Arab musical culture. It's "fusion" at its best and, like Tinariwen, a thrilling example of artists' ability to embrace western rock guitar and still sound wildly original, robust and unadulterated.
