Djely Tapa

Just named 2019-2020 Radio-Canada Revelation in world music, Djely Tapa clearly has the makings of a great singer and is destined to become known far beyond Canada. This Montréal-based griot has a magnificent and powerful voice and her recent album, which tackles the themes of women’s place in society and Africanity, has received critical acclaim and reveals the true essence of Mandinka Africa, with kora, guitar riffs and Malian percussions.
