Marone and Co.: Pikine

The pop keeps comin’ at us on Marone and Co.’s Pikine (Tinder Production 42827762; 34:48), featuring the supple Senegalese singer Boy Marone. It’s a funky and friendly-spirited project, freely blending acoustic and electric instrumentation, assembled by producer and mastermind Manu Lima. Ismael Lo adds his distinctive rhythm guitar to the mix. Marone sings with a light, celebratory air on Pikine, named after a housing project in Dakar, his old stomping grounds.
