ne manquent plus pour la très admirée musique malienne.
la marraine s’est rendue compte que sa pouliche était mûre
pour s’aligner dans l’arène musicale, elle n’a
pas hésité à lui donner les moyens de mettre en
pratique ses connaissances. "Maintenant je me sens prête
à donner ma vision sur les maux, à faire prévaloir
mes convictions et mes qualités. J’ai décidé
alors de sortir un premier album", explique la belle-fille
d’Amy Koïta. En effet,
Minata est la douce épouse d’un
des fils de la grande star qui se bat aujourd’hui pour donner
aux jeunes les moyens d’expression de leur talent. Elle n’a
pas eu tort. La richesse de ses compositions témoigne de sa maturité.
The revelations are not missing in the so admired Malian music. And among the one who are promised to a nice career, we can not forget Minata Kouyaté. Not because of her siren beauty, but because she has a real talent. A know how that was quickly noticed by those who had the chance to see her before the release of her album. This album of eight tracks, which is still waiting her to give it a name (she’s hesitating between Djéliya and Ayé Namin), is about griots, of their role in community and society.
scourges such as jealousy and hypocrisy… also are critiqued by
this young woman who not kind at all with the Don Juan. Awaiting the
entire album, the young people, and Dance club’s DJ, the radio
animators have chosen Dambé and especially Mogoya.
Like a lot of girls who have the same as her, music is passion the very seducing Minata had since her childhood. “When I was a child, I spend my time singing the hit of the time and when I went to the market with my mother, I used to sing praising songs for women who offered me seasoning” she remembers.
To be born
in a family of griots (Kouyaté)
don’t obligatory make a child become an artist or a singer. The
proof is that “I’m the only one to sing in my family”
she said. Slowly she became aware of her capacities and managed to channel
them. The dream joins the passion to feed the artistic career. She began
with her aunt Madam Kouyaté Amy Diabaté and after she
joined the diva of the Badougou-Djoliba, Amy
Koïta, who guides her toward the realisation of her destiny.
Very talented chorus maker, courageous and persevering, Minata
never wanted to skip the stages.
And when the godmother realised that her filly was now ready to appear in the musical arena, she didn’t hesitated to give her the means to practice her knowledge. “Now, I feel ready to give my vision on the ills affecting our society and make my convictions and qualities prevail, this why I decided to release a first album.” explains the daughter-in-law of Amy Koïta. Yes, Minata is the soothing spouse of one of the daughter of the great star who is now fighting to give to the youth the means to express their talent. She’s been right because the richness of her compositions shows her maturity.
And as the icing of the cake, the ex-secondary school student has just obtained her diploma of music at the national art institute (INA). Even if she’s full of patience, she didn’t want to loose her time at secondary school. “It was impossible to study because of the perturbations, I then preferred to go to INA to improve my musical culture” she said with an entrancing and angelic smile. She now aspires to master in guitar and kora playing, instruments that she already well manipulates.
As the other artists, she feels invested of the mission to guide the music lovers, especially the young ones. “Every one should profit of his youth. But each must know how to leave his youth without being exposed to sexual transmitted infections and AIDS. And without making like a lot of girls today who are going out with men who has the age of their father just because of their money. When greed gets over the feelings, it becomes very dangerous because it exposes the girls to any kind of drama. Prudence, respect and serenity, that’s what is expected from the youth”, said the new star. The testimonies of her familial and professional surroundings prove that she herself reflects all this moral and social values.
is aware of her talent and also of the menace of her career: PIRACY.
“No one escapes to it in Mali” she recognises.
“Our elders have always fought against piracy that condemns the artists and singers to misery. They had never given up. Now it’s our turn to take over in the struggle against piracy. I’m sure that with more solidarity, we’ll be able to take up the challenge with the benedictions of our elders, of the authorities and of all the population”.
the opinion of Minata who is decided to
not let the leeches deprive her of the fruit of her work and talent.
The pure and sure heiress of the diva has a real but measured ambition.
