Project description

Although Mali is the leading exporter of African music, most of its musical artists record for foreign labels. The Mieruba label was born in 2014 out of a desire to produce local artists and to help them emerge on the national and international scenes.

As a follow-up to the successful first opus, which brought together 8 singers and musicians, volume 2 will put women in the spotlight. The 8 female singers and musicians invited to Ségou for a residency will be accompanied by 7 rising stars of the Malian music scene to record an EP each, with a view to broadcasting on streaming platforms and distributing LPs and CDs internationally. At the end of the residency, they will begin a series of concerts.
A film and a photo report will trace the key moments of the project.
