Reviews:

Five years after guitarist BarthĂlemy Attisso reformed the Senegalese pioneers to cut the grand Specialist in All Styles, the band sounds even more assured, the players more familiar with one another's innate rhythms. Baobab liven their smooth Afro-Cuban rumba style by incorporating some harsher rough-and-tumble mbalax, with an ease few veterans learning new tricks can summon.
