OUMOU SANGARE/Mogoya: For her fifth album in a quarter century, the voice that many call the greatest living African vocalist goes for a real bag breaker with one ear cocked toward indigenous sounds and the other toward the future. The kind of world beat set that gringos don't understand but are often mesmerized by, this is certainly the kind of set that makes new world beat adherents with very little effort. Even if you don't know what she's singing about, this kind of tribally rooted set draws you into it's inner circle and you won't want to leave. Killer stuff that opens the ears way too easily. Well done.
