Cheikh Lô Tours North America

Senegalese legend Cheikh Lô is gracing the U.S. with his presence next month in support of his last record, Jamm. In our coverage of the new album, reviewer Luiza Piffero wrote, "At once husky and smooth, Lô’s voice is versatile enough to evoke the praise-singing tradition of the Sufis in Senegal while also incarnating radically different personas ranging from the most devoted flamenco singer to a Cuban salsa veteran or a Malian vocalist. Whatever he sings though, its Cheikh Lô, you know it. And the world is just short of singers like these, who can sew different styles together while maintaining a strong personality."
