Raw video from an event at Bamako, Mali's Musee Nacional (National Museum) on the eve of Barack Obama's inauguration.
The event was called Obamako. In addition to the music, there was a debate about how Obama's presidency would affect the African people.
The band is called La Symphonie de la Kora. The band is led by Madou Sidiki Diabaté. He is in the center and is the younger brother of famed Malian kora player Toumani Diabate.
The video is from Real Earl Productions' upcoming documentary about a mural painted in Bamako by Bay Area artist Eduardo Pineda and his daughter Teresa. More information at danviens.com/blog
