Thierno is a saxophonist with a career stretching well over three decades - half of that time with Youssou Ndour's band 'Le Super Etoile de Dakar'. Their many hits include '7 seconds', the well known duet with Neneh Cherry. During that period Thierno also joined the James Brown Senegalese tour and jammed with Maceo Parker. He went on recording two albums with another great Senelgalese artist: Cheikh Lo. His hits compromise of 'Ne la Thiasse' and 'Bambay Guedj' on which Thierno plays a duet with saxophonist Pewee Elis. For this album, he has gathered musicians and artists from every part of Senegal and formed a new band 'Toxoro'. As well as their musical experience (some have played with Manu Dibango, Cesaria Evora, Toure Kounda.) each of these artists put his own ethnic style into the album. As a result, it is the first time ever that an album features all the different Senegalese musical styles along with a balanced mix of traditional and contemporary songs.
