Oumou Sangare Quotes
What's important to me is that this is the first time I have toured with Habib. So people who come to our concerts will get a really deep impression of Malian culture, a bit of everything. I play the rhythm of Wassoulou. Habib does the cultures of Mali, a little of everything. So someone who doesn't know the rhythms of Mali will now know them deeply.
I say, "I love you. It's true. I'm there for you, but I want you to try to help yourself." We are women, but I call on us to respect ourselves. That's called "Yala," the young women who go out and do whatever they like. I say that is not good for our dignity. I made this song in a very danceable rhythm, the kind young women like. I did it in a rhythm you could even dance to in a nightclub.
