Songhoy Blues Share Video for “Yersi Yadda”

August 16, 2017

Songhoy Blues are back with another powerful video for their song “Yersi Yadda”, now premiering exclusively on Tidal. Check out the video and Q&A with singer Aliou Touré here. Résistance is available everywhere now!

“The song’s energy masks a radical defiance; it’s a powerful message that in the face of cruelty and oppression, simply being joyful is a form of rebellion. The video opens with a reminder that 65.6 million people have been displaced by conflict and persecution before showcasing the faces of refugees from all over the world. “Yersi Yada” is exactly what the world needs right now.” – Afropunk
