From Mali with Love

I’ve always associated Mali with the great blues musicians, like Ali Farka Toure, and with incredible male Afro-pop singers like Salif Keita. But recently I happened upon Oumou Sangaré, the woman songbird from Mali with the stunning, soothing voice. Check out “Seya” above.

      Not too long ago, I posted a version of the song Ai Du – in this case, it was the son of Ali Farka who was paying tribute to his father with a cover of one of his father’s most beloved songs. Thanks again!
