Oumou Sangaré shares video for new single, ‘Fadjamou’

Oumou Sangaré is sharing the new video for ‘Fadjamou’, lifted from her critically applauded new album ‘Mogoya’ (out now via Nø Førmat!). 
Following a sold-out Village Underground headline earlier this year and an outstanding set at Glastonbury that was named ‘one of the 9 moments that made Sunday killer’ by the BBC, the new video arrives just ahead of 
Oumou’s festival appearcances at WOMAD and Shambala (full details 
below). Shot by Fansé Sanogo – a fellow Malian from Oumou’s hometown of Bamako – the vibrant new clip reflects the references in Sangaré’s lyrics to the importance of family and identity in Malian culture, “Fadjamou” translates as ‘family name’ in English. Watch the video for ‘Fadjamou’ below.
