Senegalese singer/songwriter Baaba Maal usually captures more of the NPR/mom audience than The FADER demo, but we do appreciate a good collaborative effort. For the first single off his new album Television, Maal recruited Didi and Sabina of The Brazilian Girls to sing the title track. We have the quickened edit of "Television," which is surprisingly swift and jamming, a blend of electronic dance pep with West African cool. Maal has also released a fuzzy, magical video for the song's album version (which is about seven really long minutes). Watch the time and space exploration after the jump and download the song exclusively on thefader.com below.
