From 2007 to 2008, our artistic caravan named Exobus traveled from France to West Africa. We slowly drove through Marocco, Mauritania, Mali, Casamance, the Gambia and Senegal. South of the Sahara, in the Sahel region, we came upon the Dogon village of Kani Kombole. The welcome was so warm that we decided to stay a while and set up our portable studio to immortalise some traditional Dogon music. This is the story of our enlightening recording adventure. A film by Papillon, in collaboration with Asil Production.
