Mah Kouyaté Number 2 is one of my favorite Diva from Mali. She was born from a griot family whose chief was Kabinè Kouyaté. Those two titles from "Sumu" album are particulary "envoûtants".
Mah Kouyaté: "Badjourou"
Her guitarist and husband, Fimani, was one of Mali's most famous musician. The sounds taken from his guitar are rare and powerfull. Fimani died in 2007. His guitar sound was uniquely raw and powerfull.
