Watch Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara on Colors

The Malian singer delivers a thrilled performance of “Nterini” on Colors.

Recognized as one of the most beautiful voices of modern African music, Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara offers an electrifying and bright interpretation of ‘Nterini’ on the stage of the Berlin studio. “Nterini” (which means “my love / my confidant”) tells the story of a migrant, and evokes the sorrow felt by two lovers separated by distance. It’s one of the most emotional cut from her sophomore and latest album released in 2018, Fenfo.

Co-directed with french artist Matthieu Chedid, Fenfo has been recorded in Mali, Burkina Faso, Barcelona and Paris.
