Coming up on Jamie’s radio show…

Next week, Jamie features a BBC Maida Vale session with the Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal.
One of the most internationally famous musicians from Senegal, Baaba Maal has performed with the likes of Tony Allen and Archie Shepp. He sings primarily in Pulaar and is the foremost promoter of the traditions of the Pulaar-speaking people.
For the session, Baaba Maal performs alongside Jim Palmer and Mamadou Sarr and introduces each song with a story explaining its context and original meaning.
