Souleymane Faye - Teylulen

Souleymane Faye is a Senegalese musician, formerly of the internationally successful group Xalam (named after the west African stringed instrument). Xalam actually supported Crosby, Stills & Nash on a European tour... Faye's solo music seems to be a little more low-key. This tune reminds me of something Neway Debebe may have sung. While the whole song is great, I do find myself getting stuck and repeating the 0:19 mark - the initial vocal wail is one of the most stunning intonations I've heard in a long while.

Label: Talla Diagne
Year: 1991
