Rokia Traore: Bowmboi
Buy! - (Indigo - France)
She is creating quite a buzz in Europe with the release of this new CD, her third. Rokia is from a new generation of Malian musicians, taking traditional music and instruments, and creating something totally new and original with it. A beautiful singer, she uses not only traditional instruments from all over Mali, but also string quartet arrangements played by the Kronos String Quartet on two songs. Well worth finding as an import. 11/18/2003 - Jon Kertzer
