This week's edition of World Music Matters features Malian singer-songwriter Salif Keita. Known as the "golden voice of Africa" he's also devoted much of his life to helping people who, like him, have albinism. His new album Un Autre Blanc - another white man - is released on 26 October on Naive records. After a 50-year career in music, he tells RFI it will be his last. Keita gives a free concert in the town of Fana, Mali, on 17 October in tribute to five year-old Ramata Diarra, a young albino girl beheaded in May this year.
