Released: Jan 1990
Label: Virgin Records
N'Dour's star was already solidly in the world music firmament, but Set nailed it there. Each track is urgent and well-realized: the insistent title track does double duty as a great dance song and a powerful plea for international cooperation. The del! icately plucked "Medina" is delightful, while "Xale" mines a melancholy vein. One of N'Dour's best releases.
