Le Monde pour la Paix - by JeConte & The Mali Allstars - The featured track off the coming 2012 release 'Mali Blues for Peace' or 'Mali Blues pour la Paix' written by JeConte & Adama Drame form JeConte & The Mali Allstars featuring guests Vieux Farka Touré, Khaira Arby & Bassekou Kouyate.

"We call on our ancestors to come together for peace... for a better World... for hope in Mali. We ask everyone to hold hands for peace and be one people, one Malian culture uniting for peace in Mali and the World." This is what the words say at the beginning of this powerful track, in Tamashek by Khiara Arby and Songhay by Vieux Farka Toure. Along with the beautiful melodic N'goni work of Bassekou Kouyate we are brought into a better World, a World of home...a World of peace.

JeConte & Adama Drame of the band JeConte & The Mali Allstars worked together on this song, crafting it to its full potential during the eruption of the coup in Mali in March 2012. The footage you see here is behind the scenes footage from the sessions at studio Yeelen in Bamako and also footage from the coup d'etat, Bamako, and the Festival in the Desert outside Timbuktu.
