Rokia Traore isn't a Malian singer in the tradition of Nahawa Doumbia or Oumou Sangare. Where their voices command the space, Traore's voice alights on each track like a gift that could be snatched away if we're not careful. From the spare grace of "M'Bifo" to the hypnotic circularity of "Mariama," Traore shows both range and consistency. "Manian" is a revelation.
