Na Hawa Doumbia La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Volume 3 on LP + MP3 Download
Long Out-Of-Print Seminal Album!
Nâ Hawa Doumbia's La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Volume 3 marks the first release for new label Awesome Tapes From Africa, a blog and DJ project known worldwide for shedding light on obscure and wonderful musical treasures from the African continent.
This early recording, made in Abidjan, Ivory Coast in 1982, captures the dualities inherent in Doumbia's music from early on: a stripped-down, raw backdrop supported by warm sonics; feminist expressions of social issues imparted through stark refrains.
Doumbia's urgent, distinctive vocals and hypnotic didadi rhythm from her native Bougouni have made her a respected voice in Mali for more than three decades. Today she is best known for her contributions to Wassoulou music.
