Song of the Week!

If you want to cheer yourself up on a gloomy Wednesday morning, then sign up to our ‘Mali Song of the Week’ programme!

Every Wednesday you will get a link to a track and a nifty and interesting commentary to accompany it. The whole thing is run by Sam Garbett, MDG’s Public Affairs Co-ordinator. It’s a great way to lift your head from the daily grind and be reminded of people far away...... some samples below, just click on the link.

Song of the Week comes from the Mali Interest Hub, an MDG initiative to spread information in the UK about Mali and Malians and providing a network for exchange and contact. You can visit the Hub here – and subscribe to the email group here.

And if you’re really keen and want to contribute to the action Sam will love to hear from you - sam.garbett@malidg.org.uk

Happy listening!
