The International Folk Art Market and ¡Globalquerque! proudly present world renowned Malian musicians Mamadou Kelly and the Ali Farka Toure Allstars, Tartit and Imharhan. Coming directly from Europe, this show will be the debut of The Festival au Desert: Caravan for Peace US tour, kick off the 2013 Folk Art Market and whet your appetite for this year's ¡Globalquerque.
Held in Mali for over a decade, The Festival au Desert has been cancelled as a result of civil war in that country. So, in 2013, instead of gathering in the Sahara, they are bringing the music of Mali out into the world. From soulful Malian Blues, to traditional trance-like nomadic music, to the intense, electric, modern sound of the Malian desert, this concert will be a stunning example of culture in motion, and an unforgettable opening for the 10th Annual International Folk Art Market.
