The "Bamako" songs were composed for a guy who attended the Budapest-Bamako rally in 2010.
"The Budapest-Bamako or Great African Run is a charity car race in Africa, and the largest amateur rally in the world. It is a low-budget version of the Dakar Rally, and goes from Budapest, Hungary to Bamako, Mali through the Sahara. It passes through Hungary, Austria or Slovenia, Italy, France, Spain, Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Mali. The Budapest-Bamako was inspired by the Paris-Dakar Rally. There are few entry restrictions: as long as a vehicle is street legal, it can join the event. The event also raises money and supplies for local communities and charities in Mali."

The director wanted to have a song that shows the despair and sadness how they felt, when they were really close to give up the race in many occasions througout the race. This was my attempt to encapsulate those feelings.
The song is free to take and use in your projects, or to download for own listening. Enjoy!
