Aminata Savadogo, the Latvian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna, is doing well after her Eurovision-adventure. Not only has she released her new single, Red moon, taken from her forthcoming album, she is also one of the participants of the popular TV-show Golos, better known as The Voice of Russia.

Red moon is Aminata‘s latest single, and was released last week. It is the title-track of the Latvian artists’ album, which is due for release in October 2016. Aminata will also perform a concert in the Palladium, in Riga, on 13 October 2016.

Please enjoy Red moon, now available on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and iTunes:

And there is more good news for Aminata: during the blind auditions for the new season of Golos, the Russian branch of the popular franchise The Voice, two coaches turned their chairs for the singer. And not just any coaches: Dima Bilan (Eurovision runner-up 2006, Eurovision winner 2008) and Polina Gagarina (Eurovision runner-up 2015).

Aminata was of course very excited, and ultimately chose team Polina. Of course, both artists had already met during Eurovision 2015, and may now work together on Aminata’s Golos-participation.

Aminata is steadily working on her musical career, after graduating from the University of Latvia, Faculty of Economics and Management, in June 2016.

Aminata Savadogo (Riga, 1993, Latvian-Russian mother, and father from Burkina Faso) represented Latvia at the ESC 2015 in Vienna, Austria, with the song Love injected. She ultimately reached the 6th place in the Grand Final, earning 186 points.

In 2016, Aminata wrote the song Heartbeat, performed by singer Justs Sirmais at the ESC 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden. The song reached the 15th place in the Grand Final, with 132 points.
