De bekendste zangeres van Mali, Oumou Sangare met een dubbel CD met 20 nummers, 12 komen van haar oudere album en 8 gloednieuwe tracks. 2004 dubbel-CD.
This six-foot-tall goddess is indisputably one of modern Africa`s greatest singers. Her magnificent, throaty alto and exotic yet accessible style have already won her an impressive international following. Oumou`s lyrics are nearly as compelling as her voice and person; her open affirmation of female sensuality and diatribes against polygamy have irritated conservative elders but delighted her contemporaries. She is an exponent of the blues-like Wassoulou tradition, which takes its name from a province in Southern Mali. The region`s music is based upon Asian-sounding five-tone scales and is usually accompanied by the resonant kamelengoni (a six-stringed hunters` harp) and searing, earthy fiddles, while jaunty polyrhythms are marked by wood drums, metal scrapers, and/or shakers. This double album constitutes an ideal introduction. It contains a twelve-track "greatest hits" package (picked from her first three albums, Moussoulou, Ko Sira, and Worotan) plus eight new tunes that have never before been available on CD.
