Aminata (Aminata Savadogo) has roots in a diverse ethnic and cultural background. Her ancestry is a mix of African and Russian ethnicity, which, together with the broad and inspiring Latvian culture, has influenced her to express her talents in composing and singing since the early childhood. 

Aminata was born in Riga in 1993 to a Latvian mother of Latvian and Russian descent, and a father from Burkina Faso. She considers herself foremostly Latvian.
She grew up in Latvia - a country, where everybody sings - but her strong and unique voice, which is a blend of three different singing traditions - African, Russian and European - has attracted attention in many singing competitions and music projects she has successfully participated so far.
Latvians believe that the combination of her diverse background, gifted composing skills and stage charm resembles the values of Eurovision Song Contest and puts her as a strong candidate for the victory.

Things you should know about Aminata

Aminata  composes her own music and sings it. She plays the flute and always wanted to become a singer, and only a singer.
Before going on the stage she likes to concentrate and doesn't usually speak with anybody. She likes to listen to music (especially ethnic music), which makes her get on the needed wave. She usually hides in some empty dark corner, so nobody can disturb her. But after the performance she is very friendly and talkative 
I think that every singer dreams to perform on the big stage like it is in the Eurovision. The thought that so many people will listen to my song at the same moment is very exciting, I dream to feel and to enjoy this moment. And of course it is great experience for a young artist like me.

Lyrics

English (Original)

You bring The light To My darkest side, babe
The day The night Split To cure the sight, Oh…
You care You animate You guard me bare Bring up the heart rate
Chorus: Your love Revives my soul And I know You'll choose it whole Overall
Your eye’s a good mirror Look under the cover Love Is above all
I’m safe Into your hands. Let’s move away The edges expand
Chorus.
Bridge: Show me the source of the light I’m becoming affected Seeing the glow of a white Is what I have detected
Feeling again I’m alive It’s your shining reflected Love injected, love injected
Chorus

French

Tu apportes La lumière À Mon côté le plus sombre, bébé
Le jour La nuit Se séparent Pour guérir ma vue, oh…
Tu te soucies de moi Tu me rends vivante Tu me protèges nue Tu accélères le rythme de mon cœur
Refrain: Ton amour Ranime mon âme Et je sais Tu la choisiras Tout entière

Ton œil est un bon miroir Pour voir Sous la couverture l’amour présent avant tout
Je suis sans danger Entre tes mains Allons partir Vers les horizons élargis
Refrain.
Pont: Montre-moi la source de la lumière Je suis émue De voir l’éclat de la blancheur que j’ai découverte
Je sens de nouveau que je vis C’est ta lueur reflétée Injection d’amour, l’amour injecté
Refrain
