Editorial Reviews

Following Worotan, Oumou Sangare's 3rd album for World Circuit, she decided to take some time to devote to her family & also to focus her efforts on bettering her own country rather than continuing her path to international stardom. After nearly 8 years since that last US release, World Circuit is reintroducing her with the Oumou compilation.This is much more than a simple greatest hits package, as 6 of the tracks come from Sangare's most recent album, released on cassette only in Mali in 2003, & 2 others are previously unreleased. Sangare is not only a fabulous singer with a great band, she is an important social commentator, addressing many aspects of Malian society with a forthrightness never before heard from a Malian woman. Her basic sound is rooted in Wassoulou, a modernized version of an ancient hunters' musical tradition, which featured the kamalengoni, a 6 stringed African harp. Sangare blended that with violin, electric guitar, bass, and her powerful, passionate lyrics, taking Mali by storm in the early '90s. As time went on, she incorporated some outside influences, but never abandoned her deeply Malian sound. In fact, some of the material from the most recent release is virtually indistinguishable from her 1st album. On the other hand, she successfully integrated Pee Wee Ellis & his horn arrangements on Worotan, & while the drum programming on "Yala" might be a bit disconcerting at first, she points out in the liner notes that the song was intended as a message for young people, & where better to get that message out than the dance floor? That song & Ne Bi Fe, with its almost trip-hop flavor, represent the only real stylistic departures on the collection. The intelligent, non-chronological sequencing makes the collection flow nicely. Informative liner notes outline the origins of Wassoulou, Sangare's history, and Oumou herself provides track-by-track commentary. This is a great package of amazing music from one of Mali's most important artists.
