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’ssound merged his much-loved traditional Malian musical styles with distinct elements of the blues, singing in the local languages of Fulfulde, Tamasheq, Songhay and Bambara. The result was the creation of a groundbreaking new genre, now well known as the ‘desert blues’, earning him 3 Grammy awards, wide spread reverence and the nickname of the ‘African John Lee Hooker’.
Ali’s music and style has had a significant impact on countless artists and genres, demonstrated clearly via a brand new high profile collaboration between Ali’sson, Vieux Farka Touré, and chart-topping indie-jazz trio Khruangbin.
