Adja Worried

Sticking with the female singers, today we feature Adja Soumano from Mali. These are a couple of tracks from her 2004 album, "Kokabere".

One of them is on the subject of sodomy. Not being able to understand the lyrics I don't know whether she is for or against, but seeing as they tend not to take a very enlightened view on the subject in many parts of Africa, I suspect she is against. If that is the case, I can't help thinking she has not helped her cause by having such a catchy tune, which must run the risk of making the listener think that it is fun.

"Sodome" - Adja Soumano

"Toumou Gnagnan" - Adja Soumano


Here is a clip of Adja performing the title track.
