A Song for Peace in Mali

Some of Mali’s best musicians – Khaira Arby, Bassekou Koyate and Vieux Farka Toure – have released a new song ”Le Monde Pour La Paix” calling for peace in Mali. When the coup happended in Mali a few weeks ago, Khaira Arby was by chance  in a Bamako recording studio with JeConte and the Mali Allstars. No stranger to socio-political issues, Khaira Arby was eager to work on the new song that JeConte had just written about the tensions in Mali. Together with two Vieux Farka Toure and Bassekou Kouyate the song was born.
