Inna Modja

Her mother, grandmother, sister, niece and one of her cousins – all of them appear in the new yet old-school video from the Bamako-born, Paris-based soul singer Inna Modja.

“Tombouctou” is a story about the life of women in Mali, especially in its northern parts that include the eponymous city and were torn by war in the recent years. It’s also a prayer for peace in her homeland.

While the song with the accompanying video is a little masterpiece on its own terms, it also heralds Inna Modja’s upcoming third album, “Motel Bamako”, to be released soon.
