Puppa Lek Sen: Sweet and Tuff

puppaThis is the fifth album from Senegal’s Puppa Lek Sen, a serious roots album documenting Africa’s struggles and spreading the Rasta message and culture. The album features Coco Roots (Beatmaker), Christophe Laxenaire (keyboard), Laurent Pena Vieira (drums), Vi-Avelino (guitar), Skunky Skanky (guitar), Valess (bass), Makéda (chorus), Ilements and, notably on the track ‘Pirates’, the legendary voice of Cédric Myton from venerable reggae band the Congos. Drawing inspiration overall from hip-hop and blues as well as from reggae the album is a powerful release in the spirit of a committed performer. The track featured here, ‘Dem a Murderer’, is testament to the destructive effects of war on central Africa.
