Beyond excited to find out about Aissate Ba, because it's been hard for me to find young peeps from Mauritania doin the damn thing through the media, (please if any of u guys know someone from Mauritania that is worthty of being known, please share I would love to feature more people from that beautiful African country) Aissate counts Tracey Chapman as her main musical influence, she started playing the guitar around 2000, her music is a bit folk meets reggae meets soul..It talks about stories of her people, social consciousness... She sometimes play w/2 other musicians, but for the main part on her shows u have her and her guitar.. She must be that good live, since French singer Zazie picked her last year to play the first part of her tour... You can see Miss Aissate Ba here:

Djaa my people from Mauritania are doin the damn thing:)
Eyeee Wayeee:)
