Youssou N'Dour & Le Super Etoile: Rewmi [Jololi, 2000]
For the Senegalese market and what it is: six new songs straightfowardly presented, hyperactive tamas leading stripped band, with occasional keyb washes and a single femme chorus discernible. No cameos, concepts, or fancy solos. The songs dim as they go on--only the first two seem certain to surface in export versions. But every one has its own special shift or lift. And the finale swoops upward again.
