A singer-songwriter from Senegal, Baaba Maal fuses popular music from around the world with the traditional sounds of West African griots. It's an approach that's made Maal a global star and won him widespread acclaim in the U.S., where he's just released a collaboration with the dance band Brazilian Girls, titled Television. Still, for all his worldwide reach and musical invention, Maal's music remains rooted in Africa: He sings in his native Pular tongue, while rallying around causes near and dear to the people of his home region. Hear Maal perform live at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
