Fresh off the release of her long-awaited new album Mogoya, Malian diva Oumou Sangaré is offering a new single, ‘Kamelemba’, and an accompanying video featuring an all-female cast of dancers from The Swaggers Dance Crew. Here’s how Oumou described ‘Kamelemba’:
“It’s about men who show off, who bring women down, about women who fall badly in love. I wrote this song to give advice to our sisters to be careful, because there are loads of kamelemba out there”.
In addition to the previously announced string of festival appearances in the UK, including Glastonbury, Citadel and Shambala, Oumou will also be performing in November at Utrecht’s Le Guess Who Festival.
Now watch the video for ‘Kamelemba’.
Mogoya is out now via Nø Førmat!.
