Na Hawa Doumbia – Sakòrò Mery,AS Records 1982

From 1982, this is Na Hawa Doumbia’s second album. One of
the three she recorded in Mali shortly after being discovered.
She became maybe Mali’s most popular Wassoulou singer.
I am most impressed by the freshness of her young voice
which belongs amongst the worlds finest, no doubt. The LP has
some crackles but that can’t keep us from enjoying her pure
and beautiful sound before moving to Paris and changing to a
much more modern appraoch. Enjoy Na Hawa Doumbia.

Nahawa Doumbia – Didadi, Syllart / Stern’s 1987

During the late 80’s Political and economic crisis in Mali,
the music made a move from praise and jeli, towards a more modern
sound. Especially in Wassoulou, south of Bamako.
Nahawa Doumbia comes in at the Global Groove with her fresh
sounding voice. Very nice music.
