Amoeba Review

01/18/2017

Everything Awesome Tapes of Africa puts out is, well, awesome. So it’s not surprising that this latest release is another keeper. Peulh singer Awa Poulo’s first internationally distributed album is a luxuriously layered collection of hypnotic calabash gourd rhythms, tightly woven strings of guitar and n’goni, and Poulo’s warm lilt rising and dipping like a dove over the music. Despite its crisp recording by American, Mali-based producer Paul Chandler, the sound of Poulo’s native region is preserved, earthy yet precise and masterful. Songs like “Djulau” sound at once reaffirming and mournful, as Poulo captures an elemental essence, the songs revolving with tight gnarls of melody around a central affixed point. Poulo Warali is a beautiful collection that serves as a welcome introduction of Poulo to the Western world.
