The studio Bogolan receives for several years the visit of the big names of the international pop as the Icelandic diva Björk, the American singer of jazz Dee-Dee Bridgewater, the Nigerian bluesman Keziah Jones, the French dee-jay Frédéric Galliano or the brilliant British Damon Albarn. This compilation redraws the way of the biggest malian and international artists having recorded in the studio as well as the talentuous singers of the new generation.
This 28-track compilation from the studio includes tracks by everyone from Tinariwen, Amadou and Mariam and Rokia Traoré to Salif Keita, singing on a glorious 2002 collaboration with Africando.
There are reminders of great bands such as Mandekalou, with the epic Malissadio ; and, less successfully, visiting foreigners Damon Albarn and Björk. Get alerts on Music when a new story is published. Follow the topics in this article.
Bògòlanfini or bogolan (Bambara: bɔgɔlanfini; "mud cloth") is a handmade Malian cotton fabric traditionally dyed with fermented mud. It has an important place in traditional Malian culture and has, more recently, become a symbol of Malian cultural identity. The cloth is being exported worldwide for use in fashion, fine art and decoration. The technique is associated with several Malian ethnic groups, but the Bambaran version has become best known outside Mali.
