Because you love the music, the land, the people

The Sahel Calling Project believes in the power of music to create peace, democracy and joy. The Project supports musicians in their role as peacemakers, human rights activists and merrymakers across the Sahel in West Africa.

We focus on four activities:
1. Filmmaking and distribution
2. Peace-through-Music Projects
3. Media Outreach & Advocacy
4. Musician Support & Liaison

The Sahel Calling Project invites a global audience to get involved in all of its initiatives, including the free distribution of a our short documentary film, as well as in projects, media outreach and musician response. Visit our Get Involved Page for more information and our blog for updates.

Here΄s a dubwise music video from Ben Zabo, also on the podcast! (though in its original form!)
