This is transformative music! Got a chance to see a few videos, hear your mix and a couple of other songs on her web sites. I will download Mansaadi as soon as I get home. She’s bad to the bone.

Thanks Kalamu for this. Stay True (in Concert) is ths best. I Believe is a good second. There is a rawness and sincerity about them it even when the lyrics are in French. “…the arrangements full of little surprises with varied textures and off-kilter touches that reward repeated listening” indeed! There is some funk-undertones to her music. She sounds like a Les Nubiens older sister. 🙂 My only criticism…the songs seem too short. Almost like samplers.

B.B. King may be an influence, but Donny Hathaway keeps coming to mind.
