Oumar Konate – Addoh (Clermont)

Oumar KonateThe title means tears & the title track is about a girl sent into a forced marriage, but it’s also an analogy to the situation in Konate’s home town of Gao, Mali; overrun at various times in 2012-13 by Tuareg nationalists, Islamic militants, and the French & Malian military. The sadness often comes through in this sometimes mellow Malian Blues, recorded elsewhere while battles raged at home. Super vocals, electric guitar & traditional instruments.

Please play this – it took me three months to get a copy!
