Fulani is an ethnic group (about 20 million) who live in many countries in Sahel – the lower Sahara region of West Africa. They are traditionally nomads and herders. Today many are settled. The fulani culture also includes farmers, artisans, griots, and traders. About 1 million live in Mali. They are hospitable, proud and carriers of rich musical and other cultural traditions. Near the Sahara and the Niger bank they live their lives. Anyone who sits down and listens to the Fulani stories have much to learn. The recordings are made in Sevare in the Mopti region in Mali. The collaboration between singers and musicians from Norway and Mali, we want to contribute to the growing fulani church in Mali to use the music tradition in their worship. We hope that this cooperation will strengthen the ties between our two countries. Fulani voices are worth listening to.
