Following Fatoumata Diawara, shooting star of the global pop scene (and an actor in the recent film Timbuktu), Mali Blues is a musical journey, discovering the country’s rich musical culture and the threat posed by radical Islamists who had recently attempted to outlaw music under strict Sharia Law. On our way we meet other committed musicians, who are fighting for unity and the freedom to express themselves through their music, like world famous Ngoni player and traditional Griot Bassekou Kouyaté, street rapper Master Soumy and Tuareg band leader Ahmed Ag Kaedi.
