Nootee by Abdou Diop

Swahili Modern


  • Abdou Diop's Nootee was released in 2012 and is recognized for its exquisite blending of modern Western instruments with traditional Senegalese songwriting.

    Delightfully consistent from start to finish, Nootee is noted as "one of the best albums to have come out in Africa" in recent years. The songs are appealing to both aficionados and budding world music lovers. Throughout the album you will hear acoustic guitars, the hoddu (an ancestor of the banjo), the wooden Pulaar flute, tama drums, and calabashes. Diop sings peaceful songs about family, honest work, and his love of the land.
