Some praise for Baaba Maal's The Traveller:

"Not only a welcome "return to form" but sounds like a career pinnacle." -
Uncut

"At a relatively spry 62, Maal's voice retains both upper register strength and youthful clarity." - Spin

"The Traveller, is a conceptual declaration, one of those in-studio meetings of an African artist and European producer that can either go very wrong or very right. Thank goodness that here it's very much the latter." - NPR Music

"In these songs Maal continues to celebrate his people, his culture, and the Fulani language, even as he presents the listener with challenges to their preservation from inside and outside Senegal." - All Music Guide

"wonderfully lush and mellow" - MOJO
