Neshama News

Mali is in trouble.  The Muslim group called Tauregs have taken over the northern areas of Mali and the president, Toure has not acted strongly enough against them.  And so smaller commanders in the army have staged a coup to take power from the president and come after the Tauregs more strongly.  The people are cheering this move! But the world banks,and various other countries who have given aid to Mali do not support this and found this a reason stop the aids.  Go figure.

One of my favorite singers from Mali, Habib Koite and Bamada.


Oy!! all the beautiful music from Mali will end if the hard line Muslim groups take over.
