Mdou Moctar – Oh, France

Mdou Moctar, the renowned Nigerien band, has released “Oh, France,” a track from their upcoming album, ‘Funeral for Justice,’ set to drop on May 3rd. This song offers a fiery critique of French colonialism, showcasing Mdou Moctar’s unique blend of Tuareg guitar music and sharp political commentary. Recorded after an extensive global tour, this track reflects the band’s evolution into a heavier, more intense sound.

In “Oh, France,” the band combines blistering guitar work with lyrics that speak to the heart of their political frustrations. Frontman Mdou Moctar’s statements about the track underscore its importance as part of an album that tackles the challenges facing the Tuareg people and Niger more broadly, especially in the context of recent political upheavals in the region.

The music video, which can be seen on YouTube, complements the song’s themes with visual storytelling that enhances the track’s urgent message. This release not only anticipates the full album but also sets the stage for Mdou Moctar’s upcoming summer tour across the United States and Europe.
