As the world’s eyes turn to her hometown of Timbuktu, Awa Sangho, the golden voice of Mali, visits NYC Radio Live. Awa, who learned song-craft from Ali Farka Toure, has since toured the world with a who’s who of African Music: Salif Keita, Manu Dibango, Amadou and Mariam, Habibe Koite, Cheick Tidiane Seck, Marc Cary, Bassekou Kouyate and Oumou Sangare. Her exquisite new album, yet to be released, was first heard this night by the listening audience of WKCR.
She is joined by master percussionist Daniel Moreno, who has collaborated with countless jazz and world music legends from George Benson and Roy Haynes to Chico Buargue.
