The emerging sound featured the deep-toned, six-string harp called kamelen’goni, and most of the time, women singers. Coumba Sidibe, with her robust, tenor voice was the first to garner widespread public attention. Currently, Oumou Sangare is the biggest star of Wassoulou music, with her 2009 album being released on Nonesuch! Get ready to grove and dance to this ubbeat, passionate, beautiful music!
