The Root of Music

BY FINAH YUSOF
@ VOL 10 ON APR 01, 2017

Rhythmic music became a trigger for Alexandre Wielemans who traveled all the way to Africa finding soul in their music by traveling to Bamako, Mali with his traveling companion, Finah Yusof. It was there that he realized he had to go through a quest of creating and finding the perfect instrument that would reconnect him to his deepest roots. Meanwhile, for Finah, the music she learned in Bamako was a revelation to an almost transcendent connection she had been missing.
