In-Edit Beefeater 2015: They will have to kill us first. Malian music in exile

Johanna Schwartz. UK, 2015. Original language (English, French, Tamashek, Songhoy, Bambara), Spanish subtitles. 100'.

From the rise to power of Islamic extremists in Mali in 2012 – and the sharia law that followed – all the musicians were exiled. But not silenced. This is the story of Songhoy Blues, Disco & Jimmy, Moussa Sidi and Kharia Arbi, who carried on singing so they wouldn’t die. Their guitars are more powerful than Kalashnikovs.
