about

‘Ségou to Lagos’ is the track that names the album by Solomane Doumbia. The song takes up a melody from the Wasolo folklore and it is the track that refers most directly to Fela’s afrobeat. Some would indeed say that Afrobeat was born from the crossing of Highlife (Nigeria) and the Folklore of the Wasolo (Mali-Guinée-Côte d’Ivoire). The lyrics in bambara speak of a common issue among West African countries, immigration, and ask those who have left to return home, to the source.
