Classic: ‘Ah Ndiya’ – Oumou Sangaré

When Malian singer Oumou Sangaré recorded ‘Ah Ndiya‘ in 1989 in Abidjan, she was just 21 years old. The song was part of the album ‘Moussolou‘ (Women) which was sold 200.000 times and paved the way for a great international career. Many of her songs address the social and political role of women in the Malian society and in this particular song she condemns arranged marriages.
