'Tchamantch�', meaning 'point of equilibrium' in Bambara, is the fourth album of Mali singer Rokia Traor�. Released in 2008, and dedicated to her fellow countryman Ali Farka Tour�, one of the African continent's most internationally renowned musicians, the album is a turning point in the singer's career after she has spent a large part of it revisiting the Malian musical tradition. 'Tchamantch�' reveals a unique sound in which electric Gretsch guitar riffs come to mingle with the ancestral sounds of Malian instruments, offering a new setting to her crystalline voice. If Traor� favors minimalist and emotional acoustic ballads, she clearly assumes her blues and even rock influences, signing an intimate and voluptuous album of artistic maturity.
