This is quite good. They keep emphasizing that all people here are Muslims but many or most cannot tolerate the Al Queda style rule they are imposing everywhere they go. As the African Muslims most likely do not read Arabic and have no idea what is in the Koran at all, their being Muslim is likely more a vestigial cultural remnant more than an actual observed religion. Also I highly doubt the claim that Mali is the “most culturally diverse place on earth”.
The Islamic version of Santaria is interesting and not surprising to anyone familiar with black culture in South America and parts of the US south. Good luck on the magic though.
