Sangho, Awa - Ala Ta



Toimitusaika: Noin 7 - 14 arkipäivää
Multi-talented Malian singer/songwriter Awa Sangho is a charismatic new solo star on the world music scene. After singing with Salif Keita, Ali Farka Toure, Oumou Sangare, Manu Dibango, Amadou & Mariam and the pioneering all-girl group Les Go De Koteba she co-founded, Awa left Bamako in 2011 to move to New York City to commit to her own creative life. The beautiful original songs on Ala Ta (The Truth Belongs to God), her masterful debut on Motéma Music, represent her "Afropolitan" experience of leaving Africa but never leaving it behind. Written and composed by Awa and produced by her life partner, the accomplished world-music musician, Daniel Moreno (Salif Keita, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Dr. Lonnie Smith), Ala Ta was recorded in Mali, Senegal, California and in New York City. The project features Awa on vocals, chorus and percussion, Mao Otayek (Tony Allen, Stevie Wonder) on vocals, guitar and bass guitar; and Moreno on percussion. Sung mostly in Bambara, the CD opens with the ethereal title track, an affirmation of living in faith that is beautifully shown on the video companion piece. For "Nangaraba," about a mischievous little girl, Awa adapted a traditional song she heard in her youth, lending it more of rock/ pop feel. "Bamounan" is a praise song dedicated to parents, especially mothers who carry their baby on their backs. "Somafolo," a sad, true story about Awa leaving the Ivory Coast and having to leave her young son with his father. The moving "Naigaikorosigui" closes the disc with its haunting meditation on the cultural tradition of cutting women's genitalia, a taboo subject Awa implores us to address.
