Live at TONY: Baaba Maal

The titanic Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal—an African superstar of the highest order—rolled into town to headline Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza. Before heading to the club, Maal stopped by Time Out New York's office for an acoustic song, sans band and dancers. As you can hear, all he really needs is his mighty voice, which cut through our office like a fine knife, bedecked in diamonds.
