New Music from Mali

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

This New Sounds program presents music from Mali, but focuses on recordings from 2012 (mostly), the year when the country was split by civil war & the Islamist takeover of the north; and the subsequent intervention by the French army and neighboring countries.  Despite this period of violence, and the ban on music due to strict interpretation of Sharia law in the northern part of the country, there has been a whole bunch of incredible music, both imbued with defiance, and straight pleas for peace, making its way out of Mali. Hear new music from Rokia Traoré, who has temporarily relocated to Paris for the safety of her young son, during the Malian conflict.  Also, listen to a prayer for peace from guitarist /singer/songwriter Sidi Touré (who is appearing this Saturday, 10/5 at BAM Cafe).
