"A group of youngsters gathering outside of a club -- Saturday night fever in Bamako/Mali; couples performing the Mali twist in a disco, wild combinations of traditional African clothing and shiny western shirts lit by the stroboscope of a late night party, and the beauty of having fun, drinking, dancing to the music -- the nightlife of thirty years ago in the city of famous photographer Seydou Keïta, captured by his "younger brother", photographer Malick Sidibé. Sidibé's genre pictures, group portraits, images of couples in love, of sexy young men and women express pure joy of life. They are fun to look at, fabulous examples for anybody interested in fashion and style, and perfect examples of the life of a hybrid society, oscillating between the traditional tribal life and urban survival in the West African city of Bamako."
