Though he was already one of the biggest names in Sahelian pop when it was made back in the 1980s, this album was a good part of what put him on the international map. On their way away from their earlier Cuban sound, N'Dour and Super Etoile did a nice job of marrying Sahel and soul, despite some rather pointless synthesizer. And, of course, by now this one is part of recent musical history — almost a classic, in fact. And yes, it's disgracefully short. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music, Rovi
First of the 'mblax' genre
Youssou N'dour released this album in 1983 and the like of it had not been heard before.
The title track "Immigrés" is a real stand-up-and-dance feel good track and the album remains a high point in my music collection.
All time great
This is one of the all time great records in my view, particularly the title track - it was the record that brought Youssou N'Dour and Mbalax to western attention. Superb!!
