About New Sounds
New Sounds provides a place for your left and right brain to unwind at the end of day.
For this New Sounds, listen to several groundbreaking female musicians from around the world. There's music from Malian kora player, Madina N'Diaye, who has opened the way to a new phenomenon in Mali: women’s access to musical instruments traditionally reserved for men. In her song, “Moussow,” the lyrics translate as: “They think that women are incapable of doing all the things they do. But I, Madina, play the Kora...Glory to women, glory to the women of Mali.” We'll hear another tune from her album, "Bimogow."
