西非的馬利雖然是全球最貧窮的國度之一,卻擁有非常旺盛的音樂能量,一直被視為爵士樂以及藍調樂的故鄉,本片記錄了四位不同世代、音樂風格的音樂人,透過他們的樂器與歌聲,唱出他們心中的不滿與對社會議題的關懷。起因於伊斯蘭教法引進馬利北部後,禁止了舞蹈及通俗樂的行動,摧毀了樂器。音樂人受到威脅,遷居其他城鎮,但伊斯蘭教法也逐漸擴散到那裏,另一方面,聯合國與德軍也控制著當地......
從《尋找甜秘客》到《馬利藍調》,我們持續看到了音樂能產生的影響力量有多大,在貧困的生活當中激勵著民眾。本片四位音樂人希望透過歌聲傳達的和平抗爭能量,也滿溢在銀幕之外,帶給觀滿滿的能量。

The West African country of Mali is considered the birthplace of the blues, brought later by abducted slaves to America’s cotton fields. For centuries, traditional music has unified Mali’s society. Yet the music of Mali is in jeopardy. Radical Islamists introduced sharia law in the country’s northern part, prohibiting dance and secular music, destroying instruments, and threatening musicians. Mali Blues tells the story of four musicians who refuse to accept hatred, suspicion, violence, and a radical interpretation of Islam in their country.
