Oumou Sangare Arnold Chiwalala & Co

A truly unique voice combines with strong melodies and powerful lyrics to bring out the best from Mali's elegant traditional instruments.

Arnold Chiwalala's infectiously energetic ensemble deconstructs the kantele, Finland's national instrument.

"No one could dispute the strength and influence of Malian singer Oumou Sangare – she is one of Mali's most famous musicians and internationally one of Africa's most recognised voices."
Songlines 3/2009

"Great soul music."
