Rooted in traditional music and tradition in general, since my early childhood, especially in the land of my culture, I am committed to enhancing the image of Malian culture and that of the Buwa.
I defend the essential place of women in modern African and Malian society, inspired by the place of the valiant traditional Buwa women in their homes. I also embody on the theatrical scene, the image of the new Malian female generation, daring, through television series and shows in which I interpret the role and the vision of this new female generation who hope to revive another image of the place of the woman in our society.
On the musical level, my voice is sensitive to all the challenges that have been holding back development in the Sahel for centuries. It is also a cry of distress for the harmonious living together, the role and the indispensable place of women in our modern societies. My voice also carries a message for the improvement of our environmental conditions which are today very precarious, which is the cause of innumerable little known diseases. Especially women and children suffer a lot from this climate change. My vocal cords do not spare the asymmetrical war that daily mourns thousands of my fellow citizens who are in total distress. Through my music, I identify with these thousands of victims of human violence. The deep mutation in progress in our societies is not foreign to me nor does it leave me indifferent. I hope, through my musical texts, to root the new generation and posterity in our powerful culture so that it can resist this eminent challenge that assails all the civilizations of the world, in this pressing era of globalization. My last album WILÉ illustrates all these words.
Our culture is inexhaustible.
