Music in Mali

Posted on March 25th, 2012 in News, Recent posts by .

Mali has made headlines the last few days after a rebel group stormed the presidential palace on Thursday in a military coup.

With the country that has been a beacon of stability in West Africa plunging into chaos, it’s easy to forget the wealth of music that comes from Mali. While reading up on the latest news, we stumbled across this nice video of Malian music made by film maker and radio presenter Tim Tyson Short. 

This video was recorded at the 2007 Festival sur le Niger (one of our top 25 international festivals in 2012). You can watch more videos by Tim Tyson Short on his Vimeo page
