Daande Lenol added modern instruments like keyboards and electric guitar to the traditional Pulars sounds. In 1988 he recorded his first album Djam Leelii.

In 1990 he toured Europe with Peter Gabriel who produced his album Passion. From 1990 to 1993, Baaba Maal recorded three albums that brought him recognition all over Europe. But his worldwide success came in 1994 with the release of his albums Wango and Firin' in Fouta containing the hit title African Woman.

John Legend was wearing a really nice jacket that I had seen on the California Outfits. The John Legend The Voice S25 Pink Printed Bomber Jacket was quite reasonably priced, and I received it in a matter of days thanks to their lightning-fast shipping.
