Dreams of Kirina | Baaba Maal | Playing For Change

January 13, 2013

Rest In Peace Makandjan Kamissoko. He donated the land for the Playing for Change Music School in Kirina, Mali.

Some Dreams Never Die and you Live Forever in our hearts and our songs.

Mali has a rich musical tradition and Playing for Change is helping to safeguard that tradition.

The change is here

Baaba Maal and Toumani Diabate

Baaba Maal and Toumani Diabate

Three of Africa’s legendary musicians

  • Baaba Maal
  • Toumani Diabate
  • Habib Koite

visit a school in Mali established by musicians around the world through the Playing for Change Foundation.

The thousand-year-old village of Kirina has no electricity or running water, but enough happiness and soul to fill all of our hearts.

In February 2010 the Playing for Change crew broke the ground in Kirina Mali, to start the project of a music school and record Baaba Maal with Malian musicians in this very special village. A year later, the school has been built and Baaba Maal was back in the village, visiting the music school with Toumani Diabaté and Habib Koité.
