Djely Tapa

Video 3 / 12

Born to an illustrious line of Malian griots, singer Djely Tapa lights up the stage with a repertoire that floats between Sahelian atmospheres, blues and electronic music. Her new album, Barokan, is both a reflection of her musical identity and a stunning tribute to women and Africa. With her high-pitched voice, smouldering flow and elegant gestures, Djely Tapa is a distinguished vocalist. In May 2019, she was named Radio-Canada’s World Music Revelation for 2019–2020.
