The queen of African music Oumou Sangaré has blessed the world with her music for more than three decades – turning the native Malian style wassalou into something of an international sensation. The name of her widely acclaimed debut ‘Moussolou’ from 1989 fittingly translates into women, a theme that runs like a thread through her rich and fruitful journey across which Sangaré tirelessly has lobbied for women’s right – invoking solidarity with her unforgettable, commanding voice.

In 2022, she returned with her ninth album ’Timbuktu’, one of her best and most accessible yet, once again proving what an ever-changing musical force she remains. We are proud to announce that the legendary Oumou Sangaré will be playing Way Out West this summer!

Oumou Sangaré will play Way Out West Friday Aug 12.
