Released:
Label: Thrill Jockey
Sidi Toure comes from an upper-class Songhai family about whom songs have been written, but against whom he had to rebel in order to play music. His Sahel Folk, thus, is both introspective and thoughtfully critical, rebellious in its own quiet way. With lyrics that offer succinct social critique and bright, crisp, skilled guitar work, the album showcases a hushed, sparsely textured, melodically intricate griot style. Don't miss Toure's elegant meditations on the blues, like "Djarii Ber."
