, January 28, 2013

Mali's Ousmane Ag Moussa, singer of the Touareg band Tamikrest, is interviewed at the Barbican Hall before the Sahara Soul concert in London on January 26. Mali's musical community, whose singers and players have won worldwide acclaim, has been targeted by hardline Islamists bent on imposing sharia, or Islamic law. Concerts have been banned in northern cities, clubs closed, instruments smashed and burned, musicians harassed and forced to flee. Reuters/Luke MacGregor
