OUMAR KONATÉ shouts out to his sister warning her about gunfire and violence in the streets. This 2nd album by KONATÉ comes out of a country in turmoil. Shifting between acoustic [Wango Maben] and hard rock [Hinchi Hinchi] KONATÉ and his power trio are 21st century West African millennials slammed by geopolitics, shocked by an uncertain future and stymied by fundamentalism, corruption and failed economies.
