Caravan for Peace: Mali’s Call for Peaceful Dialogue

July 26, 2013 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm EDT

The traveling version of Mali’s award-winning “Festival in the Desert,” featuring two of Africa’s most powerful musical groups, will stop in Troy, NY for a free all-ages show in Freedom Square. Bring lawn blankets and chairs; the rain location is The Sanctuary for Independent Media. War can’t stop the music, and Malian artists continue to practice their art despite upheaval and violence. In support of and to highlight their tenacity, the Festival au Desert – Caravan for Peace, brings to the US legendary Malian artists adored in Mali. This presentation is made possible by funding from the NYS Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and the City of Troy as well as volunteer labor and small financial contributions from thousands of patrons of The Sanctuary for Independent Media.
