The theme of the album is Africa - my Africa. - Cheikh Lô
Musical maverick Cheikh Lô is a unique figure, transcending genres and cultures to produce a sound that is unmistakably his own. Lamp Fall is the Senegalese musician's first new album in five years. With recording sessions spread across Dakar, London, and Bahia, Brazil, the sound encompasses mbalax, reggae, jazz, funk, flamenco, Congolese rumbas, Cuban guajiras and the rhythms of Brazil.
His third album for World Circuit has a distinctly contemporary feel, whilst retaining a deep spirituality that is essential to Cheikh Lô.
