Some great new music out of Mali, courtesy of our friends at Afropop Worldwide:
Anansy Cissé is one of Bamako’s hottest young guitar talents. So we’re very happy to be able to give out a free download of “Aïgouna,” one of the highlights of his new record Mali Overdrive.
Thanks to everyone who came out on a beautiful Sunday afternoon to help edit, format, translate, and illustrate material for the forthcoming Bambara-language edition of Where There is No Doctor. And a big thanks to Mighty Minnow Web Studio + School for the use of their awesome collaboration space in downtown Oakland. We got a lot of good work done and of course swapped some good stories.
If you are good at MS Word and/or have an intermediate/advanced level of French, and can dedicate a few hours, we could use your help! Get in touch and we’ll get you to work! Or sign up for our email list (top right) to find out about upcoming opportunities to volunteer.
If you’re in the Bay Area, please consider joining us on Sunday for our fourth (?) Dokotoro Hackathon. The good people at MightyMinnow web studio and school, have graciously allowed us to use their offices. It’s right around the corner from the new Bissap Baobab!
