Tchamantche, meaning "point of equilibrium" in Bambara, is the fourth album of Mali singer Rokia Traore. Released in 2008, and dedicated to her fellow countryman Ali Farka Toure, the album is a turning point in the singer's career after she has spent a large part of it revisiting the Malian musical tradition. Tchamantche reveals a unique sound in which electric Gretsch guitar riffs come to mingle with the ancestral sounds of Malian instruments, offering a new setting to her crystalline voice.
