ABLO is part of a project curated by Francesco Bonami and organized by the Turin based arts foundation Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo.

Ten young Italian artists have been invited to create videos on one subject. Each of us have filmed a three-minute video whose main character is Abdullay Kadal Traore. Ablo, as he likes to be called, is a griot musician from Burkina Faso who has been living in Milan for seven years and playing with various music groups, such as the Milanese and multiethnic “Orchestra di via Padova” and the group “Sinitah”.

The video is part of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo collection and it has been donated to the Milan Council.
