World Music Features Salif Keita
Mali’s greatest popular singer, Salif Keita, has come home to Africa. When he moved to France in the late 1970s, Keita was fed up with conservative attitudes forbidding Mande nobles like him to become musicians, and also with corrupt government officials, inferior recording studios, and all the other limitations faced by aspiring musicians in Africa at the time.

World Music Features Youssou N'Dour
After the North African orchestra sound of Egypt, Youssou N’Dour returns to form with Rokka Mi Rokka. N’Dour’s been around the block so many times that his hybrid of Western pop song aesthetics and African roots is deep in his bones. Nothing feels forced, and while some may still prefer the Youssou of yore (master of mbalax), that’s now ancient history.
