Oumou Sangare hunt the Don Juan and the loudspeakers in his sublime clip "Kamelemba"

After offering us, the clip full of hope Yere Faga (featuring with Tony Allen) the Malian singer Oumou Sangare is back with the video Kamelemba.

These two tracks are extracted from his new album Mogoya, released eight years after Seya. Combining traditional instruments and a touch of French touch, it was co-directed by the French collective Albert (Vincent Taurelle, Ludovic Bruni and Vincent Taeger). As usual, this "self-made woman" engages verbally and attacks more specifically the speakers and the Donons Juans in Kamelemba - thus highlighting the serious phenomenon of early motherhood in her country.

Directed by Chris Saunders, the video is shot on the roofs of Parisian HLM, and follows dancers dressed in school uniforms of a virginal white and traditional hats Peul, nomadic ethnic group from which is born Oumou Sengare.

The album Mogoya was released at No Format! On 19 May. It is still available on Apple Music.

In concert on June 27th in La Maroquinerie (Paris), on July 1st at the Couleur Café festival in Laeken (at the foot of the Atomium in Brussels) and on August 3rd at the Théâtre de la Mer in Sète.
