Senegalese music legends Touré Kunda are returning with their first album in a decade, called Lambi Golo, which will be out May 25th via Shellshock.
The LP will see Touré Kunda returning to their roots, aka the Casamance region of Senegal. The songs “have been cultivated over many years and recorded in ‘village studio’ conditions to preserve the essence of life and evoke the loss of values for confused generations.” The album is being characterized as “a musical thiéboudienne that is both energetic and tender…a vibrant mix of m’balax, casamancais rhythms, funk, pop rock, and reggae and an open invitation to dance, to dream, and to hope.”
