Ali Farka Toure - Voyageur LP


Sold Out

Label: World Circuit

Ali Farka Touré is well known as one of the most influential and talented guitarists that Africa has ever produced. His legacy and impact are hard to overstate: Ali's sound merged his much-loved traditional Malian musical styles with distinct elements of the blues, resulting in the creation of a groundbreaking new genre, now well known as the "desert blues," earning him 3 Grammy awards and widespread reverence. Voyageur is the first release of previously unheard music since 2006's Savane, and features a collection of recordings captured at various points in Ali's illustrious career. The album, which features fellow Malian superstar Oumou Sangaré on 3 tracks, reaffirms Ali's status as a globally revered legend of African music.
