Senegalese singer and star of the world stage Baaba Maal is a man with a mission that extends beyond his music. He is committed to the concerns of families, young people and the future of the African continent, as is reflected in his role as Youth Emissary for the United Nations’ Development Programme.
As a solo artist, Baaba Maal has recorded 9 albums and a best of compilation released on the Palm Pictures label in 2005. In June 2009 he released his fourth studio album with Palm, entitled 'Television'. This album is full of life, with modern 'western' elements, collaberating with the New-York based, Brazilan Girls, and legendary songwriter Barry Reynolds. Hypnotic in parts, ascoustically-driven with impeccable vocals from Maal.
