Mamou Sidibé – Djougouya
Mamou Sidibé‘s music has been featured on our first 2 compilations, and finally we unveil her full length Djougouya, originally released in Mali in 2007. Mamou digs deep into her Ganadougou roots, a region with a rich musical heritage close to the Wassoulou tradition made popular by another Malian diva, Oumou Sangaré. Called Techno Mamou because of her experimentation with modern electronic arrangements, her album still has plenty of beautifully melodic arrangements to please the most demanding of Malian music heads. Pure bliss.
Djougouya is available in iTunes.
Mamou Sidibé on Myspace, at last!
Mamou Sidibé has had a website, but for the last few weeks it’s been down. One more reason to hurry up and create her own myspace page!.
Mamou Sidibé mixtape @ Breath of Life
Breath of Life always has interesting music and thoughts. They recently highlighted Mamou Sidibé’s great mixture of Malian and Ganadougou tradition, with computer drum sequencing and “techno”. You can read the full post here or download the mixtape here.
