    Life has a rhythm, it's constantly moving. The word for rhythm ( used by the Malinke tribes ) is FOLI. It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound. It's found in every part of daily life. In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it. It's an extraordinary blend of image and sound that feeds the senses and reminds us all how essential it is.

    there are plenty of relatively good metal bands with Northern African/Middle Eastern roots. I remember exploring some of it a couple of years ago, before I started listening to classical music. One of the best bands was Myrath - progressive metal from Tunesia

    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.
