With exceptionally researched ethnographic data, this film highlights the significance of the Festival au Desert to local economies and identities, the devastation caused by its exile, and the resilience of the Malian people in the face of political instability and cultural conflict.  It is a must-see for students and professors of Ethnomusicology, Religion, Sociology, Anthropology, and African Studies.
