Video: Boddhi Satva 'Ngari Konon' ft. Oumou Sangare

Watch Boddhi Satva's Bamako-shot music video for his new single featuring Oumou Sangare.


Boddhi Satva is back with a dope new video for the track "Ngnari Konon" featuring Grammy Award-winning Malian Wassoulou singer  Oumou Sangar. In the video, Boddhi intimately takes you through the city and rural areas of Bamako showcasing the cultural bonds of the people, music, dance and festive nature. It plays like a beautifully directed film, shot during a time that Europeans said was unsafe in Bamako— the irony! For more from Boddhi Satva check out this standout track off his debut album Invocation and his Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape.
