  • This strong debut from Senegalese singer Cheikh L? is a healthy hybrid of African and Cuban rhythms. L?'s high, reedy vocals are immediately evocative of countryman Youssou N'Dour -- no surprise since N'Dour helms as producer. But the acoustic aesthetic here is warmer than N'Dour's usual high-gloss pop. If you're looking for an album to turn winter to spring, darkness to light, this disc is a safe bet. ~ Tim Sheridan
Professional Reviews
Option (11-12/97, p.104) - "...There is a distinct Latin influence here...Afro-pop imperatives with a primarily acoustic regimen that calls attention to its Afro-Latin basis..."
