Our next issue, #88, is now on its way to the printers! To whet your appetite before the release date on October 12 (UK), we have put together a short playlist of some of the artists discussed in our upcoming feature on the crisis in Mali.
Kathryn M Werntz explores the worsening humanitarian and political crisis that plagues Mali, and how musicians such as Oumou Sangaré, Habib Koité and Amkoullel are reacting to the threat of being silenced by Al Qaeda.
Amkoullel – S.O.S
JeConte & The Mali Allstars (featuring Khaira Arby, Vieux Farka Touré and Bassekou Kouyaté)– Le Monde Pour La Paix
Les Sofas de la République – Laisser Nous En Paix
Keep an eye out for other tasters of the new issue over the week.
