  • On Jamm, which means “peace” in Wolof, Lô’s mbalax rhythms and signature blend of semi-acoustic flavors—West and Central African, funk, Cuban, flamenco—support his husky vocals, sung in four different languages, with help from his regular band, along with Tony Allen on drums and Pee Wee Ellis on sax. The Guardian says, “Cheikh Lô is back with an album that reconfirms his position as one of the finest, one of the most soulful singers in West Africa.” In a four-star review, Q calls it “true global music to make anyone feel better.”

  • The Senegalese singer / acoustic guitarist / Youssou N’Dour protégé creates a distinctly African yet decidedly worldly sound here. Lô, says The Independent (UK), “strikes out on a path which takes in Cuban and Brazilian sounds to brew up a wonderfully heady mix.”

  • Cheikh Lô’s follow up to his highly acclaimed debut album Ne La Thiass adds to the rippling Senegalese m’balax rhythms, Latin inflections, and spiritual intensity of his debut with sounds from Burkina Faso, Mali, Congo, and Cuba, as well as subtle reggae influences and blasting African funk, and features special guests Richard Egües, Pee Wee Ellis, Oumou Sangare, and Bigga Morrison.

  • Cheikh Lô has created an inspired and sensual acoustic/electric mix which embraces double bass, acoustic guitars, talking drum, flute and a hint of electric bass and keyboards. Né La Thiass, his debut recording, infuses rare mbalax rhythms with rippling tides of energy, but the mood is strikingly Latin.
