Festival Details - "Oumou Sangaré"...

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

While her sound remains rooted deep in Malian tradition, the Songbird of Wassoulou looks to the future on latest album Mogoya.

The power of her voice and the potency of her message remain inviolable, but Mogoya (translated roughly as ‘people today’), represents an exciting new chapter in Oumou Sangaré’s storied career.

Since the release of her 1990 debut Moussolou, Sangaré has become an emblem for African womanhood.

She has campaigned fearlessly to improve the position of women in Mali and to oppose polygamy, child marriage and a system that defines a ‘good wife’ as a submissive woman.

‘Ever since I was a kid, I promised myself that one day I will scream about this problem to the whole world,’ she says.
