Music Video : Folk Music of Mali (Western Africa)
Republic of Mali is a landlocked country in Western Africa. Mali was once the part of three famed West African empires which controlled trans-Saharan trade in gold, salt and other precious commodities. Mali is now divided into eight regions and one district.
Malian musical traditions are derived from the griots, who are known as “keepers of memories.” Mainly the Malian music tells a story through sound.
