Sunday, April 19th at 4:05 pm
When Islamic militants overran northern Mali in 2012, they imposed an especially brutal brand of Sharia law that included a complete ban on music - a mortal blow in a society that has revered its musicians for centuries and now watched as they were forced into silence or exile. From battlefields to refugee camps to the stages of Timbuktu and London, They Will Have to Kill Us First tells the chilling and inspiring stories of displaced artists struggling to reclaim their voice, and introduces Songhoy Blues, a band formed in exile that turned the experience into joyous anthems of rocking reconciliation.
