Mali's female singer-songwriter Oumou Sangare single-handedly revolutionized African music with the brief Moussolou (1990), containing only six songs devoted to feminist issues from the perspective of a young African woman, sung in a majestic register, and accompanied by danceable music for violin, lute and percussion. Less exuberant but also more sophisticated, Ko Sira (1993) contained eight longer compositions that explored a broader emotional spectrum. Worotan (1996) went further beyond, ending with the nine-minute Fantan Ni Mone and the eight-minute Djorolen. Oumou (2003) is an anthology with some new tracks.
