Film Showing: Mali Blues

05 Apr 2018


This vibrant concert film follows four Malian musicians who use their music to stand up to religious extremism. When dance and secular music is prohibited, musical instruments are destroyed, and musicians are forced to flee, these Malian artists use their music to inspire tolerance and peace.
