Nahawa Doumbia ('D' is pronounced 'J') is one of the most popular singers from the Wassoulou region in South Mali. She speaks to the younger generation of West Africa through her lyrics about love, the position of women in Malian society, and the plight of the African refugees in France.

This song is dedicated to the late Konate Fili, Nahawa's former patron, who will be missed by many- he was kind, loyal and trustworthy and worked to help his people.

Song translation:

The mighty angel of death has no mercy. One by one, termite hills will crumble, huge trees will be destroyed, mighty rivers will dry up, the earth roll over and vanish and the sky will fade away.
