I Ka Kené is the seventh album by the Madrid-based group, Dover, released on 4 October 2010.[1]

The songs were composed between March 2009 and May 2010. The album itself was recorded and produced by Dover in Reno Studios in Madrid between June 7 and July 9, 2010. Five of the songs have been mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (who has worked with blink-182, Paramore and Simple Plan, among others) in Los Angeles, the rest having been mixed by Jesús Antúnez. The album was mastered by Ted Jensen. Dannayá, the first single, was pre-released onto iTunes on July 31.

The 10 songs on the album are sung in a mixture of English, French and Bambara, all together lasting just over 30 minutes in length. In addition to a regular album, Dover have also released a special edition version that will include a vinyl album and a remix of "Dannaya" made by the "Instituto Mexicano del Sonido".
