’Badala’, the new single from Songhoy Blues, translates to “I don’t give a sh*t / f*ck / damn”, and is inspired by the youth in Mali, especially young women, who are pushing back against patriarchy & societal controls. They are empowering themselves & taking ownership of their voices, their bodies & their futures. This song celebrates that courage, fearlessness & agency through the story of a woman ending her relationship, and choosing her own destiny.

It’s the lead track on the bands third album ‘Optimisme’.
