While out filming a ribbon cutting for a new school built by malirisingfoundation.org, we were treated to an impromptu motorcycle rally put on by the youth from the village of Touban. What struck us most was not the novelty of the situation we found ourselves, but the similarities we recognized in this positive display of youth culture.
Just like back in America, there were young men trying to impress young women, young women pretending to be unimpressed by their efforts; and lots and lots of style.
Throw in a music track from Mylmo, one of Mali's politically-driven up and coming rappers, and you can see, cultures may vary in their struggles, but humans are human wherever you go.
Special thanks to Yeah Samake of samake2012.com for providing us with this opportunity.
Song is used with permission by Mylmo and is called "Diarabi Nene"
