FESTIVAL OF MALI 3 NIGHT PASS!
Festival of Mali brings together some of the most important artists from one of Africa’s most musically rich countries. When the Northern Mali conflict broke out in 2012 all non-religious music was banned putting an abrupt halt to the creative forces of artists in one of the most musically significant countries in the world. Though this ban was subsequently lifted the danger of these artists to perform their music in their homeland still looms bringing a powerful plight for these artists. For four nights, five of Mali’s musical ambassadors come to New York City to present their revered art to the world.
