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.

The latest news from our blog..

Posted by John Bosch on February 15, 2014 we are. One year later, back in Mali, in Bamako, in the thick of it. All of the journalists and analysts are making their evaluations - us? We´re filming the reality...what the musicians are living and achieving. Our impressions will come to you via the big screen - keep an eye out for our feature-length film to be released by the end of 2014!

Thanks for all of your support!
