Fatoumata Diawara Intro Africa


‘Nterini’ (which means “my love / my confidant”) tells the story of a migrant, and evokes the sorrow felt by two lovers separated by distance. It includes the lyrics, ‘My love has gone far away’, ‘And may never come back’, ‘He may never come back’ and ‘What am I to do?’.

The video was shot in the Danakil Desert in Ethiopia. Aïda Muluneh was inspired by Afro-futuristic aesthetics, as well as visual elements borrowed from the Dogons, a Malian ethnic group.
