The latest dicovery in Segou. Open since nov.2007 and very well occupied with locals and europeans. Excellent service, good music-mix and a friendly flamboyand owner. Umar knows how to treat his guests and gives them the right attention. A good range of "known" booze for the Euro traveller. French and English spoken. The food is excellent and well prepared although the portions could be a bit larger. Prices are moderate. The daily changing menu on a blackboard will give you plenty of choice.Great place for the TGIF hour.
Favorite Dish: boulettes de boeuf, grilled capitaine

Kasobané literally means 'Prison is finished, we are free' in Bamanan. It refers to the omittance of products that are not their own, and instead the use of natural Malian products only.
The group started by studying the bogolan traditions troughout Mali, including the symbolic alphabet, the techniques and uses of the bogolan cloth, etc. This enabled them to understand the significance and teachings of the cloths which were in danger of being lost. Consequently, they abandoned modern art painting methods and worked exclusively with traditional Mali art materials such as vegetal pigments found in clay from the river Niger and plant dyes, using them on locally grown, hand-woven cotton cloth.
The group has a shop and studio in Bamako and a gallery in Ségou.
What to buy: The gallery is specialized in 'bogolan', the exquisite painting technique from Mali, made with naturally waved cotton and painted with products naturally occurring in Mali.

the Niger river plays an important role as road of transport as well, as you can see in these pictures. Anything will be transported on this river to get it to the other side of the river bank or the other side of the country.

When you are in Ségou you can visit the pottery village, Kalabougou. It 's situated about 9 km from Ségou, and by boat it takes you about 1hr.
About 3000 souls are living in this village who dedicate their life to making pottery, famous all over the country.
If you can't visit the village, you can watch the boats arrive with plenty of pottery almost every day in Ségou; and visit the pottery market at the river bank in Ségou.
(I don't remember which days exactly the pottery arrives, or if it arrives daily. If someone can fill me in on this, you are welcome.)
