Alumaye (meaning “have you heard?), is the second international album release from kamele n’goni maestro and singer-songwriter Massa Dembele (Burkina Faso). Alumaye combines modern afropop and the traditional sounds of western Burkina Faso.
Alumaye was recorded between Wagadugu, Burkina Faso and Tamale, Ghana. In addition to the kamele n’goni harp, Massa included Burkinabe indigenous percussion, balaphone, flute, bass and guitar.
Massa Dembele’s first international release was Mezana Dounia .
