Video: Baaba Maal: Music and soccer

The ageless Baaba Maal revels us with Hamady Boiro, part of the griot musical tradition of Western Africa. I had the pleasure of watching Baaba Maal at Prospect Park years ago where he set the stage alight with his kinetic dancing and soulful voice. Senegal disappointingly did not get through the next stage of this year’s ACN but they still hold the distinction as just the second African country to progress to the quarterfinals in the 2002 World Cup.
