It's a voice that soars - pure, clear and true - above bass and synths, traditional percussion and infectious Mande guitar grooves. A stop-you-in-your-tracks voice instantly familiar to anyone in Mali, West Africa: Rokia Kon�, aka the 'Rose of Bamako'. On her debut international release, she's teamed with Irish-born, California-based rock producer Jacknife Lee -and reimagined the Malian sound in ways leftfield and ground breaking. 'BAMANAN' is a collaboration that connects the great ancient kingdoms of Mali and the bustling modern street life of its capital, Bamako to a remote recording studio nestled within California's Topanga Canyon. That bridges deep tradition and forward-facing innovation. One of Mali's most beloved and dynamic artists, Rokia Kon� is a force to be reckoned with.
