A young woman grits her teeth, body standing tall as if in defiance, face contorted with pain, dripping in sweat, on the edge of a roof looking out on a city landscape. A chorus of voices open the video, and the scene cuts to a still displaying the message of the latest track from Grammy award-winning artist Oumou Sangaré: “Yere Faga Nyani / Never give up, never surrender to pain.” “Yere Faga” is the lead single from Sangaré’s newest album, her first in eight years. The title, Mogoya, translates roughly to “People Today.”
The video follows a young woman, moving through her world, vacillating between serene calm and choreographed outbursts of anxiety. Her actions toggle between hysterical joy, solemn indifference and saddened anger; settings change from her home to open markets and corner stores. At times the woman laughs with hysteria, contorting her face into expressions of almost comic distress, at others she dances a duet with a newspaper or solemnly eats a lollipop to the stares of passerby.
Sangaré tackles the dark underbelly of her career in this meditation on depression and suicide. The young woman embodies the feelings that Sangaré speaks to in her lyrics. Using dance, visceral frustration and corporeal tension exemplify the struggle it can take to make it through the day.
“Don’t kill yourself because of suffering. Life on this earth is not easy and people will always talk ill of you, no matter what you do. If you kill yourself over such things, you will just leave your loved ones behind in more pain. I was called all sorts of names, but did I commit suicide? Suffering and pain are part of life.” (Translated lyrics from “Yere Faga”)
Throughout the track, Sangaré’s vocals are accompanied by the hypnotic drum play of Tony Allen, once Fela Kuti’s bandleader and the co-creator of Afrobeat, and her singing holds true to her traditional Malian signature. The family of instruments in this powerfully catchy yet poignant track range from the traditional, such as the kamele n’goni (harp), karignan (metal scraper) and calabash (gourd used for percussion), to electric guitar, bass, keyboards and even synths. Allen and Sangaré’s unquestionable talent in their respective fields unite in a stunning marriage of past and present to convey a powerful message of fortitude in the face of depression and suicidal thoughts.
Sangaré is featured throughout the video, in a decrepit warehouse standing atop a mountain of car tires, robed in a darkly hued floor-length dress and a shroud of black feathers covering her shoulders. Copper twists graze her shoulders and her lips are painted dark sea blue.
In an interview with OkayAfrica, Sangaré explained: “This album is the result of many years of work. I’ve collaborated with many people and I’ve been able to observe people’s mentality…This time around I wanted to go for more of a modern sound, to satisfy young people in Mali, but being careful, all the while, to respect my culture and my tradition.”
The album was recorded in Stockholm by Andreas Unge and produced in Paris by French team A.L.B.E.R.T. (Vincent Taurelle, Ludovic Bruni and Vincent Taeger) known for their work with the likes of Air, Beck, and Franz Ferdinand. Fusing traditional and contemporary with Allen and the production team yields the rich fabric of sound heard in the lead single.
The video ends with the woman standing in solidarity in the company of others, their heads bowed, fists raised, maybe in protest or acknowledgement of the reality of depression. The foreshadow of resilience is palpable, both in the video’s visuals, the musical composition and Sangaré’s lyrics. To hear the rest of Mogoya, place your order here for its release on May 19, 2017, on the No Format label.

Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou’s collaborations with stage director Antonis Antypas have generated some of her most powerful music. Medea, like the earlier Trojan Women, comes out of this association. Created to accompany performances at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the music vibrates with emotional intensity. Karaindrou gives her themes to a small ensemble, its sound-colours creating an ambiance both archaic and contemporary, as textures of santouri, ney, lyra and clarinets are combined and contrasted. Even with reduced instrumental forces the composer seems to imply an orchestral scope. Giorgos Cheimonas’ Modern Greek adaptation of Euripides provides the lyrics, movingly sung by a 15-piece chorus under the direction of Antonis Kontogeorgiou and, on two pieces, by the composer.
Euripides’ play, first staged in 431 BC, counts amongst the darkest of the dramas of antiquity, a harrowing tale of betrayal, rage, retribution, madness, and infanticide. When Jason abandons Medea to marry Glauce, daughter of King Creon, and thereby strengthen his political influence, Medea responds with a fury that knows no bounds. In a programme note for the Epidaurus production, Antonis Antypas writes “Medea’s divine lineage [in Greek mythology she was the niece of Circe, granddaughter of the sun god Helios] and preoccupation with the heroic code of honour gird her and put the knife in her hand. Her passion for Jason has humanized her, but when Jason’s betrayal reveals her sacrifice to have been in vain, she regains her divine stature and the right to punish her mortal husband for his hubris.”
Karaindrou counterpoints the plot with music that builds tension also through restraint and silences. Already the pulsing of the bendir on “Ceremonial Procession” and the baleful melodies for ney and clarinet seem to anticipate the misfortunes ahead. The themes passed from clarinet to cello in “On The Way To Exile” are laden with melancholy. In her liner note Eleni praises the commitment of the players, “travelling with me through Euripdes’ bleak world of poetry, unfolding their song, compassionate toward the play’s characters.” They convey “sounds of the Orient, Greek but also global” to underline the drama of the barbarian Medea, “whose love for the Greek Jason made her renounce her homeland, father and mother.”
Eleni Karaindrou’s is the first voice heard on the album, singing Medea’s laments. Thereafter the chorus take up the tale, enumerating the consequences of “love’s great malevolence”.

Going ten years between albums is no big deal for Senegal’s Orchestra Baobab, whose integration of West African and Afro-Cuban styles made them a sensation in 1970. After cutting more than 20 albums between then and 1987, they split up for 15 years. They reunited for a tour in 2001, just as 1989’s classic Pirates Choice was reissued by World Circuit. They followed the tour with the killer set Specialist in All Styles, comprised of new material, a year later. (It was produced by Youssou N’Dour.) After more international touring, local residencies, and family commitments, it took another six years for Made in Dakar to materialize, but it was worth the wait.
Any band with a 47-year history has seen changes; OB is no exception. These began in 1974…
…when their original Wolof singer Laye Mboup was killed in a car crash. The band’s two great Casamance vocalists, Balla Sidibe and Rudy Gomis, enlisted Ndiouga Dieng — the subject of this tribute — to fill his shoes. Dieng was an active member until his death in 2016. (He was replaced by his son for this recording.) Founding guitarist Barthelemy Attisso, from Togo, also left to pursue his law career full-time. Sidibe, Gomis, saxophonists Issa Cissoko and Thierno Koite, and longtime rhythm section — bassist Charlie Ndiaye and conguero Mountaga Koite — remain the core. (Sidibe also plays timbales.) New rhythm guitarist Yahya Fall (Etoile de Dakar) joins the section with Oumar Sow and Rene Sowatche. For the first time in their history, they have a kora player in Abdouleye Cissoko, and the trademark sax section gets a boost in the bottom end from new trombonist Wilfried Zinzou.
This version of the band doesn’t burn so much as it simmers, and it’s a wonderful thing. On opener “Foulo,” the interplay between guitars and kora creates a gentle sway. The horns and percussion don’t strut, they slide. The Casamance vocalists glide over the top of the rhythm section, creating a great vibe for dancing or romancing. Following suit is the single “Fayinkounko,” with its R&B-styled horn lines, hypnotic percussion, and bubbling dubwise bass. The stringed instruments all trade places while painting the tune’s frame. “Natalia” is an Afro-Cuban son at heart, with sultry saxophone exchanges and punchy guitars and drums kissed by Cissoko’s bright kora to create contrast. Former Baobab member and African singing superstar Thione Seck rejoins the band in order to reprise his first hit with them in a smoking version of “Sey.” Likewise, Cheikh Lo also guests on “Magnokouto,” a gorgeous marriage of Northern Senegalese pop and pachanga. “Caravana” weds a rhumba-esque bolero to sweet griot soul. In sum, Tribute to Ndiouga Dieng may delineate a new phase for this band in the studio, but the music on offer is satisfying; it’s deeper and wider and the elements of joy are untouched by time. And make no mistake, it still slides down the spine toward the belly to create an almost irresistible temptation to dance. — AMG
