Love the Album Cover
If you like lyrics "a la Ayo, Corine Bailey, Rokia Traore, the India"...you gonna love miss Julia Sarr.
She was a very sought after chorist for great french singers Jean Jacques Goldman, african singers such as Youssou Ndour, Salif Keita , Lokua K...etc..etc
I've heard about her but I never had the chance to listen her until lately...and let me tell you something I fell in love w/her....
I was sold right after I listened to this track called Namanala in which she talks about Senegal, how even though she may have left years ago and didn't grow up there, may not have the perfect Senegalese accent she's in love w/her homeland...lovely
On her first album w/Patrice Larose a flamenco guitar artist, she finds her niche btw/lyrics in wolloff and flamenco /african rythm...
She was in town a while back..but I wasn't familiar w/her music..next time Miss Julia!!
Here's a video of her:
Djaa Senegalese Artists can be trully Authentic:)
