Oumar Konate’s brilliant new studio album was recorded in Bamako Mali during the Spring of 2018. A superstar in Mali, Oumar can be found every weekend playing in nightclubs, concert halls and on festival stages across that country. He can shred like no other on electric guitar and at the same time make you cry. This his fifth album features: long-time collaborators Dramane Toure on bass, former lead guitarist for the late great Khaira Arby, and power-house drummer Makan Camara on percussion.

Oumar invited other friends into the studio to add their unique perspectives to the sessions. Sometimes jubilant, sometimes angry, Oumar reflects the mood of young people in Mali today. His songs range from love songs to dance anthems to ballads. This is new music is from an award-winning singer/songwriter whom audiences from all over his country adore.
