Addoh is Oumar Konaté’s international debut album, out this May on Clermont Music (Saugerties, NY). Recorded during the historic 2012-2013 political crisis in Mali, it represents a transition in his musical journey, a sound treatise on the emotions and experiences of young Malians as they live through the rebellion and coup d’etat that was shattering their country and their dreams of a better future. Recorded in Africa and the US, these tracks reflect contributions by several master African and American musicians. The combination of ancient and modern instruments reveals the sophistication of the many gifted artists in Africa. Versed in tradition and connected by global media, they combine sounds in new ways expressing their aspirations and ideas. And through it all Konate’s guitar shreds.
