In 2013, Maal performed for President Obama on his historic state visit to Senegal.
Maal co-founded our annual Africa Utopia festival in 2012, bringing art and ideas from Africa and the African diaspora to audiences in the UK.
He also worked with Hans Zimmer on the soundtrack to the Ridley Scott film Black Hawk Down, while British folk-rock band Mumford and Sons and poet Lemn Sissay appeared on The Traveller.
Maal is also an activist, and is very clear about his mission: ‘I intend to be the voice for the people in Africa’s rural communities. I want to offer them a chance to be part of the future development of Africa.’
