Crowdedsourced for Riverboat via an online “Battle Of The Bands” competition, Anansy Cissé plays Malian guitar music with rock-and-roll energy and attack.

There is constant tension and release between Cissé’s guitar and Zoumana Tereta’s souk, a screeching fiddle.

“Wasmassiheme” tangles up guitar and high-speed ngoni riffs. Cissé’s flight from his northern home town prompts “Gonmi”, a plea for national peace.
