Issiaka Amkoullel is a young Malian rapper, who is protesting. His song, S.O.S. has been banned, but he's still keen to help his country. He's raising money on iTunes with this track to fund humane assistance in Mali.
Paris based Malian musician, Salif Keita, campaigns through music for disadvantaged people, such as albinos. He was interviewed about his views on the new government after the coup in 2012. He supported the coup because there was so much corruption in the old regime. I wonder what he thinks about the current conflict and stringent imposition of sharia law in his country?
