With a title that means "give and take" in Youssou N`Dour`s native language, Senegalese, ROKKU MI ROKKA presents a vibrant set of traditionally rooted North African songs. The follow-up to the worldbeat superstar`s Grammy-winning EGYPT, this 2007 album, issued on the respected Nonesuch label, is carried along by light, frenetic percussion and lilting melodies that allow N`Dour`s emotive vocals to shine brightly, as on the shimmering opening track, "4-4-44," and the rolling "Tukki." For those unfamiliar with N`Dour`s revered brand of Afropop, this organic, uplifting outing is a wonderful point of departure.
"Singing in the Wolof dialect has liberated him to emote like an African Otis Redding, while his Senegalese band combine traditional instrumentation with rock guitars to thrilling effect."
