On the eve of the historic Presidential elections in Senegal on 25 February 2012, there was one song that quietly took over the airwaves of every radio and TV station in the West African heartland, one song that served as the backdrop to the fall of the incumbent Abduwale Wade signaling the arrival of a new democratic era. The song was Rewmi (‘Country’ in English), written, performed and recorded by Senegalese Kora Master, Seckou Keita. Rewmi is a powerful call for Africa to unite, for fellow countrymen to stop fighting one another and instead come together to fight disease and hunger and work towards a new and positive future.
Over six months on, Rewmi forms the opening track on Keita’s latest album release, Miro, the fourth since his debut album Baiyo launched to great acclaim 12 years ago and marks his own powerful steps towards a promising and positive future. Miro means ‘Positive Thought’ in English and represents the direction of Keita in this album, a lyrical and masterful journey across continents with contributions from musicians of Senegal, Gambia, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Colombia, Madagascar, Guinea Conakry, Mali and Spain.
The Miro project represents a return to Seckou's roots combining the original Mandinka and Wolof traditions that inspired him as a child, together with his contemporary experiences collected all over the world on the way. The results are truly magical.
