Awa Poulo - Poulo Warali

Awa Poulo — Poulo Warali

I’ve known about singer Awa Poulo for a while. Absolutely obsessed with this recording she made at Studio Mali in Bamako by Paul Chandler and his team last year. Poulo Warali is Peulh music at its best. The entire album speaks a consistent rhythmic language, weaves a lyrical tapestry of masterful vocals, ranging and raw, alongside the woody, acoustic interplay of n’goni (stringed instrument), guitars and calabash gourd thump.

Awa Poulo‘s Poulo Warali comes out January 20, 2017 on Awesome Tapes From Africa (LP/CD/Digital).

I’m into that, that sounds promising.
Isn’t it the daughter of Inna Baba Coulibaly, sometimes written Hawa Pullo?

BTW: The fula (Peulh) say Hoddu for the Ngoni or konting..

Isn’t Awa Poulo the daughter of Inna Baba Coulibaly, and has sometimes the name “Hawa Pullo?” (which is basically just in a other luanguage)

“Sidy Modibo”, the 8.th songs is one of the famous songs from Inna Baba.

BTW: The fula (Peulh) say Hoddu for the Ngoni or konting..
