Salif Keita

I found a great videoclip from Salif Keita´s last album in YouTube but Universal Music (France) dont like users who embed videos so I can just provide a link to the great and beautiful video made using recycled materials (cardboards, paper and wood)… but dont be sad!! thanks to Soul Kitchen Session I find the same beautiful song in acoustic version…

Salif Keita (1949) is an internationally recognized afro-pop singer-songwriter from Mali. He is unique not only because of his reputation as the Golden Voice of Africa, but because he has albinism and is a direct descendant of the founder of the Mali Empire, Sundiata Keita. This royal heritage meant that under the Malian caste system, he should never have become a singer, which was deemed to be a griot’s role, also he was cast out by his family and ostracized by the community because of his albinism, a sign of bad luck in Mandinka culture.
