Mali is a country so rich on musical culture. When you visit the country, be rest assured you will be able to see a concert with one of the talented musicians in the country while in Bamako. Make sure you also follow the sound of any music instrument when you walk in the streets! I met this guy playing the ngoni (similar to the kora, but smaller) outside the Maison Des Jeunes, and I had a great time listening to him playing traditional songs from Mali.

I´m an Oslo based web publisher with passion for communication, travel and a green lifestyle. When I travel, I prefer to go slow, sustainable, and “live like a local”. Why slow? It is about challenging the cult of speed, and to enjoy the small things in life and to live in the present.
