Travel to Bamako in Songhoy Blues’ New Video

June 6, 2017

Travel to the capital of Mali in Songhoy Blues’ amazing new video for “Bamako”, now premiering exclusively via Tidal and NPR Music. Check it out here.

“The opening sights and sounds of the video for “Bamako,” a new song from Songhoy Blues’ forthcoming album, Résistance, takes you straight into the heart of the capital and largest city of the West African country of Mali. “Bamako” viscerally taps into the rich musical heritage and jubilation of the culture. From barber shops and crowded streets to scenes of fruit vendors, motorcycles cascading through the roads, and dancers getting lost in music and the nightlife, “Bamako” captures a joyous spirit.” – NPR Music
