Daara J

Young Senegalese trio that came together in the early 90s. The first album “Daara J” in 97 (recorded with Mad professor and Bubbler) was followed by "Xalima" and the critically acclaimed “Boomerang” in 2003.

African traditions are blended with American influences, mellowness, warmth and a critical eye. The maturity of their approach was also appreciated by guests such as Rokia Traore, Disiz La Peste and Sergent Garcia.

The trio were nominated Best African Artist at the Awards for World Music 2004.

Daara J, jeune trio sénégalais formé au début des 90's à Dakar. Daraa J  publié en 1997 (enregistré avec Mad Professor et Bubbler), et Xalima sorti un an plus tard ont été suivis par Boomerang in 2003.

Entre tradition africaine, inspiration américaine, douceur, chaleur, âpreté et sens critique, Daara J trouve le ton juste. Pas d'esbroufe, pas d'attitude, juste l'essence d'une recherche textuelle et musicale aboutie. La diva malienne Rokia Traoré, Disiz La Peste, China et Sergent Garcia ne s'y sont pas trompés, qui apparaissent ici en featuring. Que ce Boomerang leur revienne...
