Oumou Sangaré ‘Mogoya’

19/05/2017

After unleashing fiery single ‘Yere Faga‘ on the world, Malian superstar Oumou Sangaré releases her new album Mogoya (meaning “people today”) on Nø Format. Her first solo album since 2012, it mixes traditional instruments such as kamele n’goni (harp), karignan (metal scraper) and calabash with electric guitar, keys, bass and synths to create a perfect blend of traditional and modern. She has help from guests like Tony Allen but this is her show – as MOJO magazine put it recently “Sangaré rocks in her own way, and nothing is ever going to change that.”
