The Malian singer OUMOU SANGARÉ, “the most celebrated performer in West Africa,” (New York Magazine) has brought the enchanting tribal rhythms of her Wassoulou homeland to the global stage with a captivating presence and a voice of pure gold. The Arabic music savant BASSAM SABA “weaves together Lebanese and Arabic folk music with Turkish Gypsy styles and Russian motifs, playing oud, flutes, violin and buzuq…surprisingly funksome stuff.”
