'The singing power man', wrote de Volkskrant about the Malian superstar Oumou Sangaré. 'The Songbird of Wassoulou' brings traditional African Wassoulou music into the 21st century. With always a message. About emancipation, belief in one's own strength, and tolerance. "A war is going on in Mali, and only love can stop it," Sangaré said in NRC. With her album Mogoya, she has, as hoped, also reached the youth.
Hypnotic, adventurous and powerful: keywords for this special Grammy winner. On Timbuktu, Sangaré transcends musical boundaries and genres. A blistering combination of Malian singing and music with elements from blues, folk and rock. The ingredients for an exciting and wonderful musical evening.
