DAOUDA DEMBELE is a jeli, or griot from a town near Segou, Mali. Griots are the oral repositories of Mali’s history, and Dembele plays the one-to-three-stringed spike lute called the jelingoni. Dembele’s hypnotic music reflects the region it is from almost perfectly. Not too far north of Segou, the Sahara encroaches almost daily; daytime temperatures during the hot season climb into the hundred-teens. It’s not uncommon to watch people stretch out in rare patches of shade in the middle of the day and sleep.
