Fatoumata Diawara releases Ambè


Malian superstar Fatoumata Diawara has enlisted a primo roll-call of acclaimed female artists of African origins or descent to collaborate with her on a new song, ‘Ambè’ (check out the video here).

The word ambè means ‘altogether’ in Bambara, and the track's core message reinforces the importance of harmony and togetherness in difficult and challenging times. It therefore seemed a no-brainer for Diawara to rustle up some like-minded sisters for this standalone project. 

Angélique Kidjo, Dianne Reeves, China Moses, Inna Modja, Somi, Mayra Andrade, Thandiswa Mazwai and Terri Lyne Carrington were subsequently enlisted and all contribute vocals and lyrics to a verse of the song, recorded remotely during the first lockdown before being mixed together.
