Khaira Arby

By RobboB  
Despite being a cousin of the mighty Ali Farka Toure, she was forbidden by her father to follow her musical calling and instead raised a family. However, domesticity could not extinguish the dream and a resolute Khaira reinvented herself and is now known as "the nightingale of Mali's north". Picture taken Saturday afternoon at the WOMAD festival in rural North Wiltshire.

Cheers all
