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.

Watch the brand new trailer for our upcoming second film, Malian Pieces.

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.

The latest news from our blog..

After three return trips to Mali in the past 2 years, we're just about finished with our second film, Malian Pieces:Stories from the Richest Country!

Watch our trailer here, and help us raise the last 10,000USD here.

As you may know, Mali is still in a terrible state of turmoil, with musicians and others trying to regain stability, economic security and harmony between ethnic groups.

Helping us complete Malian Pieces will bring the much needed continued media coverage and awareness to "the war" in Mali and give exposure to the musicians who need all the encouragement and every CD sale they can get.

Make music, make peace!
