El canto de los dioses ★★

Uruguayan Films I’ve Seen

Really boring documentary about the music of Mali. It’s marketed as a road trip, but only the first 15 minutes have that aspect and it’s not good. The second part of the film is basically just about a random wedding and a man that manufactures instruments. There’s some cool material in the third part when they actually go to an interesting place, which is a village that has a religious festival with crazy huge masks and shit, but it’s not worth it. There’s barely edited interviews that go on forever, and I’m sure that they are very informative if you are passionate about African music, but for most people the material is not enough to keep your attention.
