Photographer's Note

Series from Jazz Club, one of many dens with music, beer and shady characters. Bamako by night means little lights, but a lot of excitement. Almost every venue has excellent live music, reggae, jazz, Sahelian blues, salsa. There isnt many fancy drinks, people drink usually beer or coca cola. A lot of rasta hanging around means plenty of ganja smoke. There is usually some Liberian refugees, a bit annoying in their hustling of English speaking visitors, but not so tough as they pose. A lot of deals is made and proposals await white man who dares to venture there. There isnt a lot of dem white people, if they come to Bamako, they rather visit fancy discos where entry costs from 10 USD up and there is DJs instead of live music. You wont see wealthy Lebanese that run the businesses around the town in a bar like this. This is strictly working class place.
