My newest music video for the iconic Malian artist Oumou Sangaré is out. The video takes on a performance driven journey driven by the lyrics of the track Yere Faga, which take into question the challenges of the youth of today. Using herself as a metaphor Oumou sings about her own challenges as a young women in Mali, the discrimination she endured and how she came out victorious through perseverance.
