MUSIC VIDEO:  LIVING DARFUR (4:12) from MATTAFIX (Toby MacDonald Rhythms & Hymns)
See the nation through the  people's eyes.
Darfur is a region in western Sudan. An independent sultanate for several hundred years, it was incorporated into Sudan by Anglo-Egyptian forces in 1916. The region is divided into three federal states: North Darfur, South Darfur and West Darfur. Because of the war in Darfur between Sudanese government forces and the non-Arab indigenous population, the region was in a state of humanitarian emergency between 2003 and 2010. 
The official music video for 'Living Darfur' filmed on the border of Chad and Darfur. Look out for Matt Damon in the intro!
