I was going to post this two days ago, but the upload to YouTube took to long, so I didn't have time to finish it.
Here is another video from the same concert as "Yayoroba" by Oumou Sangaré. The concert was recorded by Malian television in 1988, - so from the earliest part of Oumou's professional career.
The song "Saya magnin"(which can be loosely translated as "Death sucks") is based on a traditional from the hunters (donso*) music of the Wassoulou region, but is a 'popular' theme in other Malian musical styles too.
Unfortunately the song breaks of after just over four and a half minutes.
*This is the official spelling. It is often pronouced as "dozo".
