One day I’ll make it to the Festival au Desert. Let’s hope it’s back in Mali sooner rather than later. In the meantime here’s a reminder of what it’s all about. Fantastic stuff.
(Gotta love the Tuareg – fully turbaned up in the studio)
UPDATE: here are a couple of things I’ve been reading or listening to…
- The Strand on the BBC World Service has a nice feature
- Tom Coghlan has an interview with Khaira Arby in today’s Times, behind the paywall, which also features a nice portrait of a night out in Bamako
- And this is where, I think, it all started for me, the incomparable Andy Kershaw goes to the Festival au Desert
