Photographer's Note

Here's a golden hit from one of our best trips ever!


Bamako is the capital of Mali. It is located on the river Niger in the south of the country. The name is derived from the Bambara word meaning "crocodile tail".

In Bamako we met up with a local musician who took us around a couple of days. This picture was shot in his neighborhood. The kids in the picture are some kind of family of him (it was never really sure exactly what the relationship was).


This picture celebrates the diversity and richness of Malinese music. In format and frame I tried to evoke an old style vinyl single.
