‘A gripping, powerful documentary’ – Indiewire

Following Malian musicians such as Songhoy Blues and Moussa Sidi, this documentary looks at the aftermath of a jihadist takeover and subsequent banning of music. Music, one of the most important forms of communication in Mali, disappeared overnight in 2012 when Islamic extremists groups rose up to capture an area the size of the UK and France combined. But rather than lay down their instruments, Mali’s musicians fought back.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with musicians from the band Songhoy Blues.

Screening as part of Sound and Vision.

After the film, Songhoy Blues will be performing at SWG3 Studio Warehouse. You can purchase a combined ticket to both the film and the concert at the ticket link above.
