Na Hawa Doumbia's La Grande Cantatrice Malienne Vol 3 marks the first release for new label Awesome Tapes from Africa, a blog and DJ project known worldwide for shedding light on obscure and wonderful musical treasures from the African continent. This early recording made in Abidjan, Ivory Coast in 1982 captures the dualities inherent in Doumbia's music from early on: A stripped-down, raw backdrop supported by warm sonics; feminist expressions of social issues imparted through stark refrains.
