The music of Mali's Tuareg people is music of resistance. Master traders of the Sahara desert for millenia, they've never enjoyed significant political power, and their musical culture reflects that frustration and struggle. But times have been tough for these people in the aftermath of a 2012 fight for independence, which was hijacked by al-Qaida. Special correspondent Monica Villamizar reports.
