In attendance on Friday was the head of Mali's ruling military junta, Colonel Assimi Goita, who was part of a group of young officers who launched a coup ousting President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on August 18.
Traore became president the following year and ruled with an iron fist, before he himself was ousted in a military coup in 1991.
As a young lieutenant in 1968, Traore was the main instigator of a coup that overthrew Modibo Keita, the country's first president after independence from France in 1960.
Soldiers dressed in full regalia stood at attention, according to AFP journalists, while two planes performed a fly-past overhead.
The former autocrat was buried at a Bamako military camp Friday, where a funeral band played at the arrival of his coffin, which was draped in the Malian flag.
