If you’re not familiar, Hawa Drame was a major voice in Mali. Her mother was a griot (Doussou Kone) and she began perfuming a the age of 6. She appeared in National Ensemble Instrumental du Mali for a few years, where she composed memorable works that became standards. She went on to win international awards and perform across Africa and the world. Her embrace and expression of Bamana musical traits was her signature til the end, when she passed away in 1996. She made a lot of records and I think I like this one the best.
