Radio Hour with Oumou Sangaré
Oumou Sangaré is an internationally renowned singer, composer, activist, and entrepreneur from the Wassalou region of Mali. Oumou became an instant feminist torchbearer with the release of her first record, Moussolou (meaning, Women) in 1990 and the next three decades would see her release nine albums and tour the world many times over, cementing her status as an icon. Host Elia Einhorn recently caught up with The Songbird of Wassalou, along with her translator and friend Majolie BERjes to go deep on Oumou’s wonderful new record, Timbuktu; the risk & sacrifice she’s faced for speaking out for women’s rights; and how no matter where in the world she may be, Mali will always be an intrinsic part of who she is.
