From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lobi Traoré is a Malian musician. He was born in 1961 in the village of Bakaridianna, on the Niger River close to Ségou. His singing has been described in The Economist as "flat, strangely penetrating tone, somewhere between rap and blues".

His breakthrough album, Bamako, produced by Ali Farka Touré, was released in 1994. It was voted one of the best rock albums of the year by Libération and one of the best world music albums by Le Monde.
