Tata Bambo Kouyate

Like many children given birth to into jali families, Kouyate began singing at a age, joining the Malian Country wide Ensemble and planing a trip to the 1967 Pan-African Music Festival together. She became among Mali’s most widely used singers, traveling from coast to coast and carrying out traditional jali classics and compliment tracks. In 1984, a rich patron helped purchase a recording program in Paris, which led to her biggest strike, “Hommage a Baba Cissoko.” In 1988, she turned from traditional tools to contemporary types while keeping her familiar design.
