Music and songs from Mauritania - Dimi Mint Abba

Dimi Mint Abba was the most famous and prominent mauritanian griot or 'Iggawin' in Mauritania. This is one of her first recording from the early 90s (originally released by Auvidis in 1989), where she plays with her husband Khalifa Ould Eide. Listen to her powerful voice, accompanied by the 'ardin', a mauritanian harp also used as a percussion. A very nice mix of arab and manding music emanates from this album.
