In 2012, extremist groups captured most of the north Mali - an area the size of the UK and France combined - and shut down cities. Sharia law was instituted and music, an important form of expression and communication, was banned. Rather than lay down their instruments and surrender to the jihadist takeover, Mali's musicians fought back. This documentary pays tribute to some of these artists and bands, who defied the extremists in the name of liberty and self-expression
