Fatoumata Diawara: "Clandestin"
The video for Fatoumata Diawara's "Clandestin," off her debut album Fatou, was directed by Remy Mazet and Abass Sow. The song addresses issues of immigration. "They are called 'illegals,' but I call them warriors as it’s not easy to leave everything behind and to trust in the unknown. In Bambara, we call them nomads," says Diawara. "This song is dedicated to all the brothers who die on this trip and to those who have already left!"
