Songhoy Blues release video for storming album opener Badala

Today, Songhoy Blues have shared the video for Badala, taken from their new album Optimisme - watch below. It premiered via AFROPUNK, who described it as a "much-needed burst of pure liberation". 

Conceived by the band & directed by previous collaborator Mr. Haidara, the video was shot on location in Bamako, Mali and features dancers & models from the local scene, plus a biker gang (Motards Team Bamako), who literally steal the show.

Talking about the video, Garba Touré from the band said:

"Badala is a video that we have dedicated to the freedom and validation of the young. We encourage you to watch the video and share your experiences of freedom and validation in 2020 to inspire others".

Optimisme was out last month to critical acclaim - you can pick up your copy here.
