Global Fridays: Noura Mint Seymali (Mauritanian) says
Reared in a transitive culture where sounds from across the Sahara, the Maghreb, and West Africa coalesce, Noura Mint Seymali – vocalist and master of the ardine, a 9­string harp reserved only for women – is one of Mauritania's most adventurous young artists, emerging at a nexus of a changing Africa. Her band is backed by a declarative, funk­speaking rhythm section, composed of Ousmane Touré and Matthew Tinari.
