2004 release. "Only a lucky few can say they were there -- but now, thanks to World Village, the rest of us can watch the DVD and experience the next best thing. Lionel Brouet directed this fascinating and atmospheric documentary about the now legendary 2003 Festival in the Desert in Essakane, Mali. Rich with live performance footage and artist interviews, Brouet's film is like a magical journey to a concert -- in the middle of the Sahara desert. Sit back and enjoy performances by top stars of African music, as well as Western pop legends such as Robert Plant. The combination of the DVD and World Village's bestselling CD make an ideal record of an important and thoroughly unique event. Bonus features include musical performances only available on the DVD, a photo gallery and an interview with festival promoter Issa Dicko discussing the Tuareg people and their life in the Sahara. In French with English subtitles / Color & B&W / Letterbox 4/3, NTSC / All regions / 52 min. + 12 min. bonus feature)."
