Baaba Maal Rough Trade Instore

Baaba Maal will be performing tracks from his upcoming album ‘The Traveller’ live instore at Rough Trade East on the 25th January 2016.

The Traveller, Baaba’s eleventh album, is scheduled for release on the 15th January 2016, and is a mixture of roots African sounds and cutting-edge western electro elements.

“I am so inspired by The Traveller,” says Baaba Maal. “I feel we have achieved a perfect blend of sensibilities drawn not only from Africa and Europe but from all over the globe: I feel The Traveller defines how the planet looks at this time from the point-of-view of Senegal, Africa’s most westerly country. And despite problems in many places, that view is extremely positive and inspiring.”

Complementing the record Baaba has a tight new six piece road-band, a departure from his previous larger line-ups, that will express the fresh sound, a soulful truth and pulsating excitement of his latest innovative music.
