Global Notes: The Songbird Of Wassolou

Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia tells us about the return of “The Songbird of Wassolou.”

It’s been eight years since Grammy award-winning Malian artist Oumou Sangare released her last album. Her latest release, Mogoya, turns in a slightly different direction while keeping the musical traditions of her homeland intact. It’s a perfect blend of old and new.

We hear some tracks and take a look at Sangare’s career since her first release in 1990.
