The video to accompany the latest album from Africa Express - the first African version of Riley’s minimalist classic - recorded in Bamako, Mali in October 2013.

Director Roland Hamilton takes us on a journey through the streets of the Malian capital and into the makeshift studio at local youth club Maison Des Jeunes, offering glimpses of the creative process behind ‘Africa Express Presents… Terry Riley’s In C Mali’ with local and Western musicians plus musical director André de Ridder.

CD & limited edition vinyl out on Transgressive Records on 26th January 2015


Damon Albarn and his Africa Express project are paying tribute to Terry Riley's In C with a cover of the 1964 minimalist piece. They've now released a video for Africa Express Presents... Terry Riley's In C Mali.

The clip is a 41-minute music video for the entire piece. It was filmed in Bamako, Mali, at the time of recording, and while some of the shots show musicians performing, most of it focuses on life and culture in the West African nation. Much of the footage repeats throughout the course of the film, giving it a hypnotic, repetitive quality that mirrors the droning, clattering music.

It was directed by Roland Hamilton.
