Noura Mint Seymali & Javelin
3S Artspace

Noura Mint Seymali is a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania's foremost musical emissaries, having begun her career as a supporting vocalist with her legendary step-mother Dimi Mint Abba at age 13. Reared in a culture of collision where sounds from across the Sahara, the Magreb, and West Africa coalesce in the dynamic language of the Moorish griot, Noura's success stems from her ability to combine a rare classical mastery and a griot's cultural authority with musical idioms that speak to the emergent realities of youth culture in West Africa and beyond. With an already formidable international debut, at events like Festivalau-Desert (Mali), Festival Pirineos (Spain), and Festival Timitar (Morocco), and collaborations with artists like Tinariwen, Bassekou Kouyat√©, and Baaba Maal, Noura Mint Seymali is steadily gaining wider recognition, determined to bring Mauritanian music to the world. 

"With her strong charisma and appeal to the audience she will become a major star." -Afropop Worldwide
