Music for 5/23/17!!! Sonia Aimy, Ivoryman, Oumou Sangare

@@@ Oumou Sangare: Mogoya (No Format, 2017) I heard the pre-release single featuring Tony Allen and now the whole record isout. This first tune, Bena bena, is off to a good start — a firm midtempo groove with organ and a sophisto vocal arrangement. The second tune is the tune with Tony Allen so let’s skip to the third tune which has a brisk tempo and some nice hand drumming to go with Sangare’s voice. Her voice is a blend of beauty and strength with a slight tilt to the strength. The fourth tune is a slow, beautiful jam with kora playing, hand drumming, some hammered marimba type sounds, and vocals. Imma swing back on this record as it’s a very interesting and hot record.
