Songs for Peace, From Mali

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

On this edition of New Sounds, hear politically-inspired music from Mali speaking out against the old government as well as in response to the ongoing situation in the north;  the 2012 nationalist uprising, subsequent Islamist takeover and most recent French intervention in January of 2013.  With the takeover in the north, the hardline fundamentalists imposed sharia law, banning music (including the annual Festival in the Desert), yet that hasn’t stopped many musicians from singing, playing, and speaking out for peace and freedom.
