Fatoumata Diawara “Nterini”

Fatoumata Diawara brings the music of Malawi to your ears with this gorgeous track. I’m very into how the guitar doesn’t even sit on top of the music, it is just out in left field doing its own thing with total autonomy from the melody of the song. “I didn’t want to sing in English or French because I wanted to respect my African heritage. But I wanted a modern sound because that’s the world I live in,” she said of the track, whose video puts the migration crisis at the forefront. It was created by Ethiopian photographer Aïda Muluneh.
