Irish musicians Liam O'Maonlai and Paddy Keenan embark on a musical
adventure to the heart of Africa, Mali. Traveling over three thousand miles,
they meet and collaborate with everyone from legendary musicians (Afel
Bocoum, Toumani Diabate) to nomadic herders, culminating in a unique
performance at the world's most remote musical festival, the "Festival au
Desert".

REVIEWS:
"Simple yet sublime." - Sunday Independent

"Stunningly shot, the country is captured as beautiful, vibrant, colourful and
culturally rich, and so we are spared the typically dark and dismal portraits
of the continent which we are unfortunately much accustomed to." - Steve
Cummins, RTE.IE

"Dambé is an intriguing insight into the culture, struggles and triumphs of
the African people, an interesting portrayal about communication through
music and how two countries, on opposite ends of the economic spectrum,
can have such defining similarities." - Sunday Business Post

"The similarities between African and Celtic music have often been noted
but the collaborations in The Mali Project illustrate those mystical
connections better than any academic treatise could manage". - Donald
Clarke, Irish Times
