Oumou Sangare

I'm so happy my friend Colin turned me onto Oumou Sangare. She's a Malian superstar with a beautiful, joyful, confident voice. Seya (which means Joy) is her latest album and I find I'm listening to it almost daily. Read more about it and listen to the wonderful song Iyo Djeli here. Needless to say, I am very excited to see her perform tonight in Queen's Park as part of Afrofest, the largest annual African music event in Canada. And it's a free concert!

Enjoying a warm, summer evening, hanging out with friends and listening to incredible, inspirational music, can my Sunday be any sweeter?
