OUMOU SANGARE NEW ALBUM AND ON TOUR 2017

‘Mali’s famed singer Oumou Sangaré is stronger than ever”’ 

-The FADER

Yere Faga is now available on all streaming platforms and you can pre-order the album “Mogoya” on iTunes (Out on the French label Nø Førmat! on 19 May)

The power of Oumou’s voice and the potency of her message remain as strong as ever and, while her sound is rooted deep in the continuity of Malian tradition, "Mogoya" has a strong new sound. Co-produced by Andreas Unge in Stockholm and by the French production collective A.l.b.e.r.t. (who have worked with among others Air, Tony Allen, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beck, Franz Ferdinand) in Paris, it draws on a rich musical heritage whilst also looking to the future
