Hey Boyz, and welcome to VT..........d:o)

So, you likely know that Mali Music played at the BET awards.........d:o)

Well I do not know the studios in Bamako, but if you want to reach that audience, I suggest that you brush up a bit on the Mali history of struggles, to understand where their music is coming from. Nothing will open doors there like demonstrating knowledge of the trials and tribulations of the Mali people.

Further you will be able to gear your joints towards that struggle. Remember, Mali is 90% Muslim, and respect to the culture must be above all. Good luck compadre........d:o)

Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world, but at one time Mali was the core of an empire that was in the forefront of mathematics and astronomy and literature, all of which was finally brought to a halt by the French.............a proud heritage that should be considered.

You also should find out more about the Islamic revolts in northern Mali, - where last year the hardliners vowed to Ban all music in Mali when they take over. The French and Mali forces have quelled it somewhat but this idea will not go away.

Know your audience. Hope this helps.........d:o)

Peace out
