Product Description & Reviews

Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traore is already a fast-rising star in Europe, where she has released two albums, Mouneissa and Wanita, to both critcal and popular acclaim. With her NOnesuch debut, Bowmboi, Traore is poised to captivate an entirely new audience in the U.S.; Time calls the album "mesmerizing, casting its spell with virtuoso vocals, rich textures, and startling diversity." Malian singer Rokia Traore attracted a lot of attention with her 1998 debut Mouneissa and the even better Wanita in 2000. Now the singer-songwriter returns with Bowmboi, an album filled with creative aspiration but still set within the framework of traditional Malian instrumentation. As with the past efforts, the singer is again accompanied by acoustic guitar, n'goni (African lute), kora harp and balafon (a buzzing marimba). But here the stripped-down songs are darker and more mature, creating an overall vibe that sensuously haunting, particularly when she adds polyphonic multi-track call-and-response vocals. Amidst these earthy arrangements, the Kronos Quartet joins in for "Manian" and "Bowmboi." Having a western and modern classical feel, the music is a departure that nonetheless works because Traore matches their rhythms while staying within her creative vision. Indeed, her singing in her native Bamanan is the cornerstone to the album, soaring high and erupting into cadenzas or riding long wavering lines that shimmer with passion. –-Tad Hendrickson
