The Sahel Song: celebrating the hope and culture of a region in acute crisis
TitleThe Sahel Song: celebrating the hope and culture of a region in acute crisis
In the past year, the Sahel crisis has seen almost 29 million people in need of life-saving assistance and protection. To keep the world focused on this crisis, OCHA and a diverse mix of Sahelian artists have created a one-of-a-kind, five-minute composition of rich instruments and vocals. Together, artists Vieux Farka Touré, Oumy Gueye, Amadou & Mariam, Tal National, Songhoy Blues, and Bassekou Kouyate celebrate the Sahel’s vibrant musical culture to bring awareness to the region’s immense challenges.
