Hosted by Dennis Darrah.
Hear from one of the great female singers out of not only Mali but Africa itself: Oumou Sangare. Selected songs from her second album and next to last album reveal the depth of the tradition she comes from and the new directions she takes it to. She is known as the "Songbird of Wassoulou" (the part of Mali from which she hails). Music from around the world is featured. Bringing the audience into the realm of other cultures through music, hopefully expanding empathy for the “other,” and recognizing that “other” in ourselves.
