Please keep our friends and colleagues, neighbors and survivors in your hearts as residents from Bamako, Mali's capital city, are dealing with the terrible flooding that took at least 23 lives on Wednesday and left potentially thousands homeless.

Here are a few links to news reports: 


CPEL Segou has a new website

Djibril Guisse, member of the Council for the Local Economic Development of Segou (Conseil pour la Promotion de l'Economie Locale de Segou), has written to announce that our sister city's equivalent to the Chamber of Commerce has just relaunched website: www.cpelsegou.org. This is the organization that partnered to produce the first Festival Sur le Niger. Check out the link to their blog. It nicely features the artisan, agricultural and tourist offerings of this gentle, hospitable and dynamic region.

And, in the meantime click here enjoy some great sounds from the band of our featured musician and griot, Cheick Hamala Diabate!
