  • Seya (“Joy”), Sangare’s first international release in six years, "combines modernity and tradition with seamless verve," says The Observer (UK). Her vocals, the Daily Telegraph noted, exude “ancestral passion and a thoroughly modern, urban poise.” Sangare is backed by a large, all-star ensemble of Malian and international musicians, including longtime accompanist "Benogo" Brehima Diakité (kamele ngoni); two James Brown veterans, saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis and trombonist Fred Wesley; and Fela Kuti’s legendary musical director, Nigerian drummer Tony Allen.

  • This 2-CD set combines a retrospective of the firebrand Malian superstar's work with eight new tracks. The Times (UK) praised her "charismatic presence and soulful voice ... This welcome double CD should re-establish her reputation as one of the great divas of our time."

  • Voted European World Music album of the year in 1993, Ko Sira follows Sangare’s 1989 debut, Moussolou. It reveals a body of work that’s something of a revolution in its mix of traditional and modern musical styles with contemporary lyrics, while always maintaining a sense of African tradition.
