Great thing you posted this, Bubudi! I spoke to Sidiki last weekend about it. I am definitely going. There are lots of possibilities: for me for example it is possible to join after the first week, and make the rest of the three weeks. So than I will have my first week in Sanankoroba, the village, and after that two weeks in Bamako. The reason for me to do it that way is that I have only (!?) three weeks, and wanted to go to the festival in Segou at the end of my stay in Mali. That festival is from 3th to 6th of february, and very much worth visiting.

yes, that festival is good stuff. there is a topic about it here which includes a video.

it would be amazing to spend a week in a village in wassolon. wasulunke music has a particular resonance with me.
