Description: In the early 1960s, Mali radio used to broadcast the melancholic voice of Boubacar Traore--better known as KarKar--who sang songs of love and independence. After Malian independence, however, KarKar disappeared from public life. This film, which reveals his fate, is ultimately a portrait of Mali, painted with intertwining discussions of politics and religion, and the reminiscences of notable Malian musicians including: Ali Farka Toure, Madieye Niang, and Ballake Sissoko, and moving musical performances.
