CD


4.60 32

An early recording by the great Malian singer Na Hawa Doumbia – made in Abidjan, Ivory Coast in 1982 – which finds her backed by guitar, keyboards and raw drums that starkly frame her voice in a great way! It's that voice that really carries this recording – it's piercing, emotional and beautiful – and the raw accompaniment serves her really well. The set has 4 long, hypnotic songs: titles include "Ko Ro Dia (A Mamaye Drame L'Inoubliable)", "Dan Te Dinye La", "Sanaya (A Sidi Konate Pour Tourjours)" and "Kungo Sogoni".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
