Jimi Mbaye ‎– Dakar Heart. Label: Shanachie ‎– 64094. Recorded By – Ablaye Diop, Bassirou Mbaye. Rhythm Guitar – Pape Oumar Ngom (tracks: 2, 6, 8, 9, 10). Talking Drum – Pape Thiam.

Mbaye continues the tradition with a collection of bright songs with universally infectious hooks. His tight guitar lines are most remarkable, because they never overpower a lovely melody. Mbaye's voice, while a bit thin, is well set in the polished production.

Dakar Heart is an elegant masterpiece. BILLBOARD MAGAZINE "The solo debut for Youssou N'dour's guitarist Jimi Mbaye shines a deserved spotlight on a prodigious world music talent. RHYTHM MUSIC "Mbaye continues to prove he is one of Senegal's most exciting musicians". Youssou Ndour's lead guitarist, Jimi Mbaye, presents a moving, 10-track album of Senegalese Afropop. With the complementary use of acoustic, traditional instruments in synch with singing electric guitars and western influences, "Yaye Digalma" is a refreshing, personable album, an important addition to the collector of Afropop.

Latest albums by Jimi Mbaye.

Mbaye has released three solo albums, "Dakar Heart", "Yaye Digalma" and "Khare Dounya". The latter was recorded in Jimi's new studio Studio Dogo, in which he produces other artists. At ten years old Mbaye built his first guitar out of fishing line and gasoline cans. Mbaye was just as determined to get a guitar as he was to make it in the competitive Dakar music scene. Mbaye is one of Africa's greatest guitarists. He has played in Youssou N'dour's Super Etoile since 1979. Now he has a solo album, Dakar Heart, on which he sings as well as plays guitar. In Europe, it's distributed by BMG France. Dakar Heart skillfully blends Senegalese mbalax with American pop & R&B for a powerful new sound.

Bleeding Heart is one of several names given to albums of a 1968 jam session with Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and others. The albums were fashioned from an informal two-track tape recording made by Hendrix that was subsequently stolen from his apartment. Although it presents a unique setting, critics and biographers have generally found fault with the sound quality and Morrison's performance.
