This autumn NATTY JEAN will return with a new album: IMAGINE (Baco Records), an explicit title traducing his wish to bring some hope from Africa.
Wrote in Wolof French and English his lyrics offer a view on West African youth: its concerns, dreams and hope far from sordid clichés. Engaged and concerned like his Elders TIKEN JAH FAKOLY or ALPHA BLONDY NATTY JEAN is defending a strong Africa convinced she has all she needs to grow by herself. He’s talking about serious and very actual thematic like immigration. On « On M’a Dit » he tells us about how Europe became a distant and dangerous dream for young Africans.
