fashion + travel + music: World Music Feature-African Superstar Baaba Maal, "Missing You (Mi Yeewnee)"

If you're in the mood for an infusion of global sounds look no further than Senegalese superstar Baaba Maal and our favorite release "Missing You (Mi Yeewnii)" released in May of 2001, by Palm Pictures.

The music is utterly gorgeous with powerful Islamic overtones constructed along sensuous lines. The songs become colorful acoustically focused tapestries of romantic love and African folklore. The result is a surprisingly optimistic and moving music compilation delivering the best of African rhythm.

"Missing You," along with some half dozen other releases from Maal, are available on
