Awa Sangho

Awa Sangho’s earliest memories are of a childhood in which song has always been her response to life observations. She was raised in a community called Dire located in the Southern edge of the Sahara in Northern Mali, about 70 kilometers south of Timbuktu. This region of West Africa is noted for a diversity of world-class musicians and singers. The influential tinge of this regions sub-cultures shaped Awa, initially through song and dance as a child, through pursuit of performance in school, and exposure to the radio…where Awa was often found listening, singing, and discovering what makes each singer’s voice distinctive.
