With the news of Mali lately it got me reminiscing about my trip with World Vision in 2010. We were there to shoot a TV program for WV called the Children of Hope.
My experience in Mali was fantastic. The conditions were harsh but the people were friendly. We travelled to the farthest reaches of Mali and saw so many incredible sites.
On our last evening there we were fortunate enough to see the world famous musical duo Amadou & Mariam perform at a local club. The music blew my mind and had us all up dancing in no time.
Amadou & Mariam just won the LES VICTOIRES DE LA MUSIQUE Award in Paris (like the world Grammy Awards) this week and were interviewed on CBC’s as it happens last night.
