The sound quality is rough, even distorted at times, taken directly from the sound board of not the finest equipment, but the energy and spirit of this event make up for it. Mali has been in the news for the last 18 months, with a rebellion of northern desert peoples, the Tuareg, a coup d'etat in the capital, the usurpation of the Tuareg independence movement by largely outside radical Islamic militants, who banned and punished music (!) and demolished shrines, and the recent expulsion of them by French and Malian troops. Just days before this dark series of events, Malian musicians and their audience met in Timbuktu for an annual festival. Among them were musicians more familiar to a world audience, such as Habib Koite, Tartit, Bassekou Kouyate, and Tinariwen, but some other very fine artists were present also. It was Malians of north and south meeting in peaceful cultural exchange to perform for themselves. This album presents a snapshot of the rich styles of Malian music, from electric blues to more traditional tunes. The more enjoyable tracks, for myself, are those of Habib Koite, Bassekou Kouate, Imharhahn, Baba Djire, Kiran Ahluwalia and Tinariwen (performing the ghazal made famous by Nustrat Fateh Ali Khan, Mustt Mustt), and Leila Gobi and Oumar Konate, doing the Muslim blues Bisimillah. The final track, which is listed as 5 minutes, shifts at that point and continues for another 4 minutes with a unlisted repeating chant with simple clapping and drum, which seems to be by Tartit. Net funds from purchase go to the annual festival organization.

Wonderful document of the 2012 Festival au Desert in Northern Mali, held right before troops stormed the region. The cd features powerful live tracks - one per artist - by an array of captivating "desert blues" electric and acoustic bands and other artists from Africa and beyond. Because of the political situation in the region, the annual festival is now on hold - but three of the excellent artists you'll hear on this cd are touring North America this summer as the "Festival au Desert: Caravan For Peace" - definitely worth checking out if the tour comes to your area.
