Oumou Sangaré
"Wele Wele Wintou"

Playing Friday at the Prospect Park Bandshell (Prospect Park West and 9th St., Park Slope)
Info: Tickets (Free) | Directions

There will surely be dancing in the grass and onstage Friday night at the Prospect Park bandshell during a set by Mali's own Oumou Sangaré. Her show is part of the free Celebrate Brooklyn concert series.

For over 20 years, the songstress has been the leading ambassador of Wassoulou music, a sound rich with rhythm, inspirational lyrics and wildly vast instrumentation. Behind Sangaré's powerful voice can be heard djembe drums, traditional harps, horns and percussion made by the metal tube instrument the karinyan.

This track, "Wele Wele Wintou," is from Sangaré's 2009 release Seya, which means "joy." Download the song above or check out the video below for the album’s title track.
