In August of last year, I led an international delegation to evaluate the human rights situation of the Sahrawi people in Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara and in the Sahrawi refugee camps near Tindouf, Algeria.
There are still sixteen territories around the world that have yet to achieve decolonization. Most notable is Western Sahara, known as Africa's last colony, which has fought for self-determination for more than 35 years against Morocco.
Recently, I got to work on a series about musicians from the Muslim world. We deliberately chose artists whose work was cutting edge, and from diverse backgrounds. I've spliced 'n' diced together a few minutes from each one for this post.
