Since the mysterious Bamako_Portal landed in Kabakoo in 2019, the Bamako people have had sincere opportunities to connect with people on the other side of the world!

Inside a gold container transformed into a place of transnational exchange, the immersive live technology has made possible spontaneous encounters transcending borders, oceans and even languages. In partnership with Shared_Studios, Kabakoo promotes Malian cultures and knowledges internationally, by organizing deeply intimate conversations across time and space. From Milwaukee to Erbil, via Kigali and Montreal, it is an honor for Kabakoo to facilitate these connections between everyday Mali and the whole world.
