With Graceland, Paul Simon hit on the idea of combining his always perceptive songwriting with the little-heard mbaqanga music of South Africa, creating a fascinating hybrid that re-enchanted his old audience and earned him a new one. …  An enormously successful record, Graceland became the standard against which subsequent musical experiments by major artists were measured.
