Salam - Salam [WM016]
Maybe its just a coincidence or a start of a welcome new trend but the netaudio scene gets another world music release, this time from WM Recordings. Its finest african folk pop by a senegalese band Salam taken from their live performances. Miraculous percussion with guitar and violin influenced by the sound of the Casamance (a river in Senegal apparently).
Quite enchanting music really, genuine folk influences with the high energy charge of a live performance. Those violin solos just blow me away every time.
