Baaba Maal x The Very Best x Seye 'Suma Rokia'

Baaba Maal and The Very Best collaborate again on their latest electro scorcher 'Suma Rokia' featuring guitar from Seye.


It's been a year since Senegalese legend Baaba Maal teamed up with The Very Best on London based singer Yadi's track "Unbreakable." Baaba Maal and The Very Best re-emerge on our radar with the scorching electro anthem "Suma Rokia" featuring Seye (who recently played guitar down at SXSW for Damon Albarn's band). The Very Best's Johan Hugo brings his signature production to the table, layering the track with a bright, summer rooftop vibes. All three musicians were aboard the  Africa Express  train tour, and we've got a sneaking suspicion that's where the collaboration took root - though we've yet to find any concrete evidence. Stream the house heavy track below, and watch out for Baaba Maal's subtly enchanting harmonies.
