"Beautiful vocals from Awa Poulo, and technically astounding accompaniment from her band. This is a new recording, not a reissue. Recorded in Bamako. Sounds wonderful on vinyl. 

This is a relatively rare example of Malian Peulh music played in a modern, cosmopolitan context, reflecting the mixed society of Dilly, where Bambara, Soninke and Peulh-speaking people live among each other. 
Poulo’s conscious lyrics about community concerns speak to the distinctive identity of her broadly-flung people.

While Peulh represents less than 10% of Mali’s melting pot of languages, the dynamic music here powerfully resonates well beyond the linguistic borders." - Awesome Tapes From Africa
