With his new album, Néné, “Ilam fulfils his goal of creating a universal musical style that need not be deciphered or even translated to have deeply touched us” (La Presse, 2020). Conveyed on a waft of freedom, the voice of this Senegalese artist, with its distinctive timbre, transcends his music’s Afro-blues and pop sounds, connecting them unswervingly to teranga traditions. The touches of reggae and soul are a clear reminder that Africa is the cradle of all musical styles. A long-awaited event that will rouse music-lovers!
