In response to the situation in Mali, Fatoumata Diawara has gathered together over 40 of the Country’s most renowned musicians to record a video and song calling for peace. The group is collectively called ‘Voices United for Mali’ and the track is called ‘Mali-ko’ (Peace / La Paix). Artists performing on the track include Amadou and Mariam, Oumou Sangare, Bassekou Kouyate, Vieux Farka Toure, Djelimady Tounkara, Toumani Diabate, Khaira Arby, Kasse Mady Diabate, Baba Salah, Afel Bocoum, Tiken Jah, Amkoullel and Habib Koite amongst many others.
Any revenue generated by the ads on this “Voices United for Mali“ video is to be donated to a charity supporting refugees in Mali.

Thanks for posting the video. I interviewed several musicians from Mali, some of whom are in the video, and wrote a little article about the video (in German): http://www.popkontext.de/index.php/2013/01/21/voices-united-for-mali-mali-ko-peace-la-paix-musikerinnen-fur-frieden-in-mali/
