Tchamantché by Rokia Traoré( Recording )

23 editions published in 2008 in 6 languages and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die seit mehreren Jahren aktive und innovative Rokia Traoré stammt aus Mali, hat aber als als Diplomatentochter viel von der Welt gesehen. Im an talentierten Musikern nicht armen Mali ist sie mittlerweile eine der einflussreichsten Persönlichkeiten. "War auf ihren bisherigen Alben noch die Musiktradition ihrer Heimat im Vordergrund, lässt sie nun deren Grenzen hinter sich ... das Balafon (eine Art afrikanisches Xylophon), wurde aus dem Instrumentarium gestrichen und statt dessen ist typisch westlicher E-Gitarren-Sound zu hören. Die dennoch stets vorhandenen afrikanischen Elemente erzeugen zusammen mit den westlichen Klängen ein kontrastreiches, spannungsvolles Klangbild. Es entsteht ... eine homogene neuartige Musik, die sehr intim und verhalten klingt. Die Kompositionen sprechen eine sehr persönliche Sprache ... Sie drückt mit ihrer Musik das Gemütsleben der Afrikaner ihrer Generation aus. 'Tchamantché' ist ein leises und faszinierendes Album, mit dem Rokia Traoré ihrem guten Ruf wieder einmal gerecht wird" (www.welt-musik.net; CD des Monats. Platz 6 der World Music Charts Europe im November 2008). Titelliste: 1. Dounia 2. Dianfa 3. Zen 4. Aimer 5. Kounandi 6. Koronoko 7. Tounka 8. Tchamantché
