The ambience of the desert festival is one of the most amazing things I have experienced – the magic of the desert combined with the rhythms of music and the experience of the Tuareg culture. Unfortunately Festival au Desert has been in exile for a few years now because of the situation in northern Mali – but there is good news: if the positive evolution of the political situation in Mali continues, the festival will be back in Timbuctou in January 2014! Will you be there?
