If you’re watching Baaba Maal getting funky on BBC4 at the moment, here’s what Caspar Llewellyn Smith had to say about his performance earlier today
It’s hard to credit that Baaba Maal is now 62, but the Senegalese singer remains in wonderful vocal nick and – initially mining an acoustic vein – effortlessly transports the Pyramid crowd to his patch of the world. There’s also an appearance from the Very Best – playing at West Holts themselves later – and their souped up vibes from the warm heart of Africa beautifully soothe any lingering (or developing) hangovers.
Hello! Party time! Woo! Everyone’s in the party spirit this weekend, I trust? Nothing getting them down?
Well, the good news is that I’m here until around midnight, providing post-Brexit party vibes for us all while we come together as one to watch Adele sing about painful separations that she’s never gotten over. What could be more apt?
Before she takes to the stage for a unique performance (she’s not one for big shows, let alone headlining Glastonbury) I’ll be bringing you all the buildup from BBC2 and BBC4 (Baaba Maal is on right now), keeping you in touch with the latest news from our reporters on the ground at the festival and drinking red wine until I can’t even spell referendum, let alone get upset about it.
