    I´m the director of “world music spirit” where we make musical documentaries in refugee camps about music and culture such as western sahara,etc.Also do music exchange and workshops in Africa mostly and make our own albums,etc.

  4. Currently my husband n I are developing a cross cultural rec n leisure club which has a theme: ‘crossroads of the world’. We are constructing cultural pavilions with authentic experience of that particular belt. I would simply love to feature all the artist showcased in this spectacular program ‘music of resistance’ at our place. What a great experience it is to get educated about people and cultures different than our own.

  5. I love this music program. I fully enjoyed the vid on the Kuti legacy.


  6. Excellent, have been enjoying the show for the past few weeks. I actually use to live in Northern Mali (Gao) and it was so great to have the show focus on Tinariwen and the Tuareg culture…and to see Kidal on TV! Very impressed with the work, much appreciated! Cheers.
