Aminata (Latvia): 'The song is like my inner voice is speaking'
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.
