Four Malian artists and one French artist meet to write a human and musical history, a poetic journey from the hill of blacksmiths in Bamako, through rehearsals with Ibrahima Sarr, to animistic sacrifices at fetish celebrations. The original and unique gathering of traditional guitars (Djelingoni and Donsogoni) immerses you in the Mali of today. The voices of the griot and the hunter join the rhythm of drums to give birth to a new musical creation. The present arises from the past, as these images serve to remind us.
