Top Customer Reviews

By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 13 Sept. 2000
Format: Audio CD
The musicians from the Wassoulou region of Mali sing about everyday prblems and how to deal with them. Themes include true love versus arranged marriages. Included here are established stars such as Kagbe Sidibe and Coumba Sdibe who have been famous in Wes Africa since the 1960s, as well as younger singers like Sali Sidibe and Dienaba Diakite. The Arab-influenced music mixes traditional instruments such as the Kamal Ngoni (a type of 6-string guitar) and the Djembe (deerhide drum) with modern keybords, electric guitars, flute, strings and bass, to harmonious effect. The best tracks are full of infectious riffs but the vocals are really exceptional: tough and earthy, rousing and soaring. Their purity is underlined by the Arabic call and response delivery. As starkly beautiful as a cathedral of bones at midnight.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice sampler of the Wassoulou sound 24 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This captivating CD presents nine tracks by five female vocalists from Mali's Wassoulou region. One track is by Oumou Sangare with the others being sung in similar (but not identical) styles. The sound is a unique synthesis of west African and northern African influences from a country on the southern edge of the Sahara. Exotic but soulful. Also includes some fine instrumental work. Nicely recorded.
