Songhoy Blues
Music in Exile

From between Timbuktu, which despite what you may have been taught as a child isn't as far away as you may think, and Gao come Songhoy Blues, a band who play some of the traditional styles of the Songhoy and blues. Fleeing unrest in their homeland, they play ‘in exile’. Oumar Toure, Aliou Toure and Garba Toure blend the styles beautifully and seamlessly. CD and vinyl on Transgressive.

Songhoy Blues
Résistance

Another album of wonderful afro-funk-pop from Songhoy Blues! Résistance features guest appearances from Elf Kid, a children’s choir, and, most remarkably, punk’s sacred aunt Iggy Pop, and the whole thing flows like liquid gold. Chanting vocals, meaty rhythms, and that light-and-choppy guitar sound. Out on Transgressive.

Songhoy Blues
Al Hassidi Terei

Having been banned from playing music by Islamic extremists in Timbuktu, Songhoy Blues moved to the Malian capital where they met Damon Albarn and things have been going up since then. Some classic African folk/rock with crisp guitar and beautiful vocal sounds, it’s fun and defiant. Debut album to come, watch this space.
