Best Artist Nominee
Mogoya (No Format!)
After an eight-year absence, the Malian diva made a spectacular return to the fray on Mogoya. Her music remains rooted in the rich regional styles of Wassoulou – but this is Oumou as we’ve never heard her before, with traditional African instruments augmented by rock guitars, keyboards and synths on a subtle but strikingly funky makeover. A Top of the World in #128.
