Gorgeous from the first beat is the blend of haunting vocals in the Fula language of Senegal with rhythmic traditional guitar and percussion in Omar Ka's SORUUNA.

Omar Ka does the lead vocals:
a strong point of SORUUNA, the lead vocal has the Senegal/Mali Muslim influence so typical of the region.

Billed as 'Sahara blues meets Dakar beat', this certainly is part of the listening experience; but most Senegalese music lacks the power of Omar Ka's vocals, and his added percussive rhythms don't drown out this power as too many competitors do.

Ka's Fulani people live as nomads in West Africa, and the soruuna is the day's concluding conversation sharing music and events. It's the sharing of experience which creates the soruuna - and the life flowing from Omar Ka's vocal treat.
