Songhoy Blues - Al Hassidi Terei

Songhoy Blues grew up with the varied influences of hip-hop, R&B, Jimi Hendrix and national Malian idols like Ali Farka Touré. Hailing from Gao, the group were displaced from their home due to the growing unrest of early 2012 and formed the project as a direct reaction to their situation. The Malian band got their 'break' when they met the producer Marc-Antoine Moreau, which led to them recording with Yeah Yeah Yeah's guitarist Nick Zinner for the Maison de Jeunes project.

Oumou Sangaré - Djorolen

"Djorolen" is a song by Malian singer Oumou Sangaré from her 2003 album "Oumou". She embarked on a musical career in the early 1990s and has since been nominated for a Grammy Award. Sangaré is also an advocate for women's rights, and her songs, which she writes and composes herself, often include social criticism, especially concerning women's status in society.
