Fouma System Hit The Streets of Dakar In 'Avertissement'

Fouma System feel the heavy bass of 'Avertissement' in their Dakar-shot black-and-white music video for "Avertissement"


Senegalese griot MC Mustaf Mbaye and Danish producer Troels Kampmann aka Exampler, the pair that make up Fouma System, drop the visuals for "Avertissement," the latest single off their collaborative Mind Mi Dem EP. Shot in black-and-white on the streets of Dakar, Senegal, the low-budget production features intimate shots of the band feeling the heavy bass of the track alongside dancers drinking ataya. The visuals for "Avertissement," which translates to "Warning," were crafted by director Lamana Seck and videographer Ousmane Idy Dial of Dakar-based creative hub Studio Sankara. Watch Fouma System's "Avertissement" clip and stream their entire Mind Mi Dem EP, available on iTunes, Beatport and Amazon from Akwaaba Music, below.
