Add to Calendar 2017-04-26 20:15 2017-04-26 Oumou Sangarè at Muziekgebouw Aan 't Ij After years of silence she’s back: West African diva Oumou Sangaré is hailed for her bright voice, her fresh, sensual songs and her decisiveness.

At 18 she was still singing in the streets of Bamako, Mali, but three years later she already celebrated her major international breakthrough with her energetic, danceable songs. The success of her debut album Moussoulou (‘Women’) from 1990 was in part thanks to her lyrics, which openly broke with taboos.

In 2017 Oumou Sangaré is a diva and a role model for African women. She dares to tackle controversial subjects such as polygamy and female circumcision, but she also sings praise to female sensuality. With her bright voice and her unique, fresh approach of the traditional music of the hunters from the Wassoulou region she also hypnotizes Western audiences. Early 2017 sees the release of her new album on the French label No Format.
