In 2012 islamic extremists took over the north of Malí and prohibited any kind of music. They destroyed radio stations and threatened those who would try to challenge them.
This is the story of Songhoy Blues, Disco & Jimmy, Moussa Sidi y Kharia Arbi, who continued singing in order not to die. Their guitares are more powerful than Kalashnikovs.
