Revolutionary Malian protest singer offers a modern re-working of her nation's ancient tradition, distinguished by a pulse-like groove and the gently throbbing syncopation of the kamelengoni (a six-string 'youth harp'). Her powerfully expressive and evocative vocals are underpinned by pioneering lyrics about the changing role of African women today, torn between traditional and modern values. Colombian accordionist serves up contagious Afro-Caribbean influenced dance music in support.
