Oumou Sangare


No Format


Released: 28th Aug 2020



Released: 28th Aug 2020


Re-imagining her much-praised 2017 release ‘Mogoya’ totally unplugged, in live sessions recorded over just two days, ‘Acoustic’ is the final chapter in a trio of related projects, following 2018’s ‘Mogoya Re-mixed’ edition, which saw Sangar ‘s compositions retooled by high-profile fans including Sampha, Spoek Mathambo and St Germain.

‘Acoustic’ consolidates Sangar ‘s position as Mali’s leading opinion-maker, established with her 250,000-selling 1989 debut Moussolou, which did much for the feminist cause in West Africa. Oumou’s capacity to confront suffering whilst preserving her connection to Malian values is reflected in two additional tracks added to ‘Acoustic’. ‘Saa Magni’, which laments the passing of Amadou Ba Guindo (member of the Orchestre National Badema), and ‘Diaraby Nene’ (lifted from Mous-solou) in which Sangar ‘s lyrics dared to detail her first physical encounters.
