I'm in Mali with the "Timbuktu Renaissance" organization to assist in the creation of their short film as well as catch up with Ben Zabo, MC Jazz, and Sidibe "Boss", three of the subjects in our long documentary "Malian Pieces".

Travelled up the river to Mopti for the "Caravane Culturelle pour le Paix" music festival featuring Ben Zabo, Tartit, Khaira Arby, Ali Farka Toure Band, et al.
