LISTEN THE WORDS AND THE MUSIC OF AN AFRICAN MAGICIEN .
Ali Farka Touré is a much diversified artist who can as easily play the electric guitar as the one-string violin. A mobile camera follows this man who is the first African to have received a Grammy award.
From concerts in Bamako to voodoo cults dedicated to the “Spirits of the River”, going through Tuaregs camps or the much mysterious city of Timbuktu, we discover through the only words of Ali himself, the magnificent region of the loop of the Niger and also a remarkable character, who has managed to be at the same time an international musician and a farmer in his village..
