ALI FARKA TOURÉS  CONCERT

CANCELLED AND RESCHEDULED

FAMED MALIAN MUSICIAN

TO JOIN OTHER STARS AT " WATER MUSIC:THE

4TH  ANNUAL  FESTIVAL IN THE DESERT

TIMBUCTOO    JANUARY 9, 10, 11, 2004

Bamako, Mali, West Africa.   Invoking only a mysterious “national interest,” Barmoye Sory Traoré, the mayor of Djenné, has cancelled Ali Farka Touré’s concert planned to fight construction of the Talo Dam. 

        Grammy Award-winner Ali Farka Touré was to have given his performance in the dam-endangered town of Djenné, a UNESCO- designated World Heritage Site.

        Construction of the US Treasury-supported Talo Dam would starve 20,000 to 40,000 people by drying out a large wetland in Mali, West Africa.

        On September 22, Mali's National day, World Music superstar Ali Farka Touré was scheduled to give a concert in the adobe town of Djenné.  Now that the concert has been scrapped, the lanky song-writer and guitarist will perform in January with other Malian music stars Oumou Sangaré, Salif Keita,and Habib Koita, as well as presidential candidate and comedian Guimba National.
