Sangare the Song Bird

Oumou Sangare doing what she does best on stage at the annual festival sur le Niger in Segou Mali.  Oumou Sangare’s stage presence is phenomenal. She commands the stage.  She has the audience eating out of the palm of her hand before she even opens her mouth. When she does finally opens her mouth you’ll know why she is also called Sangare the song bird.  I love her on Ko Sira and Seya.

About leratomogoatlhe

I fell in love with traveling Africa on a four day trip to Accra in 2006. I started my journeys around the continent in 2008, when I went to Senegal, and around West Africa to launch my dream of knowing Africa through all my senses. I have been to 24 countries (and counting) over five years of stopping everything in my life to focus on one phenomenal continent. #AfricaRocks.
