Mali Singer Traoré's Fourth Album On 180g Vinyl Double LP!

This item not eligible for any further discount offers!

Tchamantché, meaning "point of equilibrium" in Bambara, is the fourth album of Mali singer Rokia Traoré. Released in 2008, and dedicated to her fellow countryman Ali Farka Touré, the album is a turning point in the singer's career after she has spent a large part of it revisiting the Malian musical tradition. Tchamantché reveals a unique sound in which electric Gretsch guitar riffs come to mingle with the ancestral sounds of Malian instruments, offering a new setting to her crystalline voice.
