"A mesmerising performer"

After her debut album Moussolou broke all records, Oumou Sangaré became one of the most respected Malinese singers in the world. With her socially engaged texts she seeks to fight discrimination against African women. Oumou Sangaré represents a new generation of ‘griottes’ or West African poets and praise singers honouring orally transmitted traditions. Her mellifluous voice is given depth owing to the resounding support of traditional instruments, such as the karignan, djembe and kora.
