3MA is the meeting of three string-instrument virtuosi: the Malian kora magician Ballaké Sissoko, the Moroccan maestro of the oud, Driss El Maloumi, and the Malagasy prince of valiha, Rajery.
3MA take their name from its French pronunciation – trois-ma – signifying Mali, Madagascar and Morocco. They represent rich traditions and deliver a shared message that rallies against the violence of our world with their soft and invigorating harmonies, vital energy, and universal poetry. Since their debut record in 2008, the 3MA musicians meet regularly to perform concerts throughout the world. Their latest album ANAROUZ (Hope) bears witness to their wonderful connection and individual experiences. Watch a video of "AnaRouz (L'Espoir)" here.
