Timbuktu Celebrations

It's Mali Independence Day tomorrow, and Hay2Timbuktu are marking the occasion with celebrations at the Globe. Andy Morgan will be talking about his recent trip to Timbuktu, and the effect that the Islamic rebels had on the music scene there. He will also be previewing clips from a soon to be released Malian film "They will have to kill us first".
There will be kora music from Mosi Konde (it's the Malian version of a harp), and there will be African themed food on offer.
Before the celebrations, starting at 6.30pm, will be the Hay2Timbuktu Annual General Meeting, which is open to all.
Tickets for the celebrations are available from the Globe.
