Mali is a country of contrasts, and music there is no exception. We’ll hear the nomadic Tinariwen of North Mali; the bluesy voice of Oumou Sangare, from the Wassoulou tradition of the south; and the voice of the great Salif Keita, heir to a line of Malian kings and one of the great singers in the Manding tradition. Also, Morey Kante, Habib Koite, and legendary blues guitarist Ali Farka Toure.
