One of West Africa’s most celebrated singers, the harpist-poet-songwriter Noura Mint Seymali is Mauritania’s defining artist on the international stage

Noura Mint Seymali is Mauritania’s defining artist on the international stage. Drawing on the timeless repertoire of the Moorish griot, a hereditary class of musical poet / historians, her band conjures “a full blown sandstorm of hypnotic grooves, melding traditional Mauritanian instruments within an electrified psychedelic rock band.” Expanding a sound born of Arab and Sub-Saharan roots, Noura Mint Seymali bends the arc of Moorish musical tradition to fit our contemporary moment, as described by NPR, “the arrival of Mauritanian vocalist Noura Mint Seymali in front of Western audiences feels like the start of a new era.”
