Notes

Mali's Les Escrocs are pioneers in the fast-growing world of African rap and hip-hop. Since the early
1990s, the group helped define the cutting edge of new music in West Africa, mixing traditional
instruments with contemporary international beats, and boldly addressing sensitive issues of social and
national politics: polygamy, AIDS, corruption and the changing role of woman in society. These fourteen tracks offer a retrospective of the first decade of Les Escrocs, one of the most innovative and
talented groups to emerge from awesome crucible of ancient and modern arts that is Mali.
