ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You can almost hear the roots of the next big musical form scratching for purchase here. Miss Maawa's engaging vocal style and penchant for arrangements with a solid grounding in Wassoulou but always open to touches of Western Influence may make her a perfect candidate to be at the vanguard of such a movement. Miss Maawa is one of those rare performers where you don't have to understand the language she's singing in to feel the power of her lyrics. Maawa's voice is a deep and eloquent alto that's full of the spirit and soul of the generations that preceded her. You can almost here the distance of time in her voice as she pulls you in and wraps the melody around you like a net. Bi Fourou is a thing of abject beauty; a creation of earth and water and sky that you don't so much listen to as get to know.
The Album "Bi Fourou" was released in Mali in May 2009. But only in April 2010 the videoclip "Bi Fourou" reached Nr.1 on the Westafrican videocharts "Topetoile"
"Bi Fourou" blends Miss Maawa's West African traditional sound of Wassoulou with a touch of European light Electronica/Dance. Wassoulou is a popular music form that infuses traditional African sounds and rhythms; it is generally song by women and deals with women's issues. The sound is similar in style to the African music that informed Paul Simon's classic Graceland album.
