Cultural Exchanges
Home ›   Cultural Exchanges
Both the countries have rich cultural heritage that could be shared with cultural exchange visits. Bollywood movies, Indian television serials and Indian attires are popular amongst the populace and an average Malian appears to hold India in high esteem. A 2-member cultural delegation visited India during the 3rd India-Africa Forum Summit (IAFS-III) for a musical performance and received great appreciation. Perhaps the only notable, but remote, link between Mali and India is the famed city of Timbuktu. For a distant Indian, Timbuktu in Mali is a legendry place at the supposed end of the world. In reality, however, this city, located on the southern edge of the Sahara desert, has historically been a simmering commercial, educational and cultural hub for centuries. The Mission celebrated Pravasi Bharatiya Divas (PBD) along with Republic Day 2016 at the Chancery. The Mission celebrated 125th Birth Anniversary of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar on 14 April 2016 at the Chancery. Chef de Cabinet of the Minister of Sports of Mali was the Chief Guest at the 2nd International Day of Yoga (IDY-2016) celebration at Centre International de Conférence de Bamako (CICB) on 26 June 2016. A Cultural Exchange Programme (CEP) between India and Mail has been signed in September 2016. In March 2017, India donated USD 0.5 million for the reconstruction of the world heritage of Timbuktu which was announced by Hon’ble Vice President of India during his visit to Mali in Sept 2016.

Earlier, a ten-member Malian traditional music group ‘Ensemble Instrumental National of Mali’ visited India between 18-19 June 2012 to take part and perform at the Africa Day Festival organized by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations.
