Biography

Bajourou is the name of an acoustic project for guitarist Djelimady Tounkara and vocalist Lafia Diabate of top-ranked Malian group, The Rail Band, and Bouba Sacko, a West African guitarist who has worked with such vocalists as Tata Bambo Kouyate and Ami

Bajourou (meaning ‘big strings’ or ‘big tune’) is also the name given to a strain of Malian (Mali) pop music usually played at weddings and social gatherings. Though now predominantly electric, its roots were in 60’s acoustic music that borrowed patterns from the kora and the donsongoni (a hunting harp/guitar) and transferred them to acoustic guitars. Lyrics moved away from the usual Manding praise songs to more secular, romantic concerns, mainly sung by women like Fanta Sacko who did much to develop and spread the music. (Wikipedia)
