Born in West Africa, Sangho writes original songs with socially conscious lyrics in a variety of African languages, with themes ranging from her hopes for today’s youth to her respect for the musicians who came before her. Utilizing traditional instruments-such as thengoni, kora, and balafon-Sangho’s debut album, Ala Ta, is full of the rhythms and character of her homeland.
