Tagline: Musicians unite to organize a concert in Timbuktu, Mali, after Islamic extremists ban all forms of music in the country.

 

Synopsis: Music is the beating heart of Malian culture. But when Islamic hardliners took control of northern Mali in 2012, they enforced one of the harshest interpretations of sharia law in history and, crucially for Mali, they banned all forms of music. Radio stations were destroyed, instruments burned and Mali’s musicians faced torture, even death. Overnight, Mali’s revered musicians were forced into hiding or exile where most remain even now. But rather than lay down their instruments, the musicians are fighting back, standing up for their cultural heritage and identity. Through everything, they have used music as their weapon against the on-going violence that has left Mali ravaged.

 

Critic Quotes: “Delivers a vibrant testimony of resilience under oppression.” – Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

A profile in courage but also groove.” – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
