Ami (Aminata Doumbia) is an African Australian singer/songwriter and recording artist with Malian/Ivorian & Burundian roots. She was previously the lead singer of Melbourne based bands, Blak Roots, Black Jesus Experience and the Sydney based Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe Theatre performance & film documentary. Having lived in five different countries, Ami is musically inspired by the international cultures and rhythms that she encountered while remaining true to her African roots. She sings in four different languages including French and English.
Ami has performed in East Africa, China, England and her home base of Melbourne Australia at venues including the Melbourne Recital Centre, WOMAD, Spiegel Tent, Riverside and Belvoir Theatres in Sydney, the Sydney Opera and at the WOW Women Of The World Festival in London, the Nottingham Playhouse Theatre and at various festivals including Emerge, Multicultural Arts Victoria Visible Music Series.
Ami’s second single follows her anthem, ‘Strength Of A Woman’. ‘Shifting Shadows’ is about when you know who you are as a child of God and humbly boast in Him when she sings ‘I am baptised in combat’ – meaning we operate in His power. It is an encouraging song for everyone to knows that faith can move mountains and have discernment to determine who is for us and who is not.
Ami continues to write and work on more music to share with the world.
