Surprising, then, that Daby Balde slipped through the net. He's a fine singer from Cassamance, in the south of Senegal, and though he is well known back home he is only now beginning to win international recognition. Like Salif Keita, Balde struggled to become a musician despite objections from his noble family. His distinctive, laid-back vocals are backed by the subtle textures of an impressive acoustic band, with kora and guitars matched against fiddle work, added later in Belgium. The only problem with Balde's debut album is the lack of variety. Having discovered a gently rhythmic, easy-going style, he simply sticks with it. Taken individually, though, the songs are superb, which is why Balde deserves his second appearance of the week, providing the opening track on Sound of the World (Wrasse), the annual world music round-up by Charlie Gillett.

Singer and guitarist Daby Balde hails from the Cassamance region of Senegal, a place rich with a variety of ethnic and musical traditions.

Good examples of the former are the beautiful song "Douna" and the equally attractive "Mbadi," which features a ska-inflected saxophone solo courtesy of Christian Derneville. Also noteworthy is the beautiful fiddling of Wouter Vandenabeele on "Heli" and several other tracks.
