Songhoy Blues are just about to release their third record. Like their past work, it combines North African desert blues with rock, and the songs are inspired by what is going on around them in Mali. On the next World Cafe, lead singer Aliou Toure talks about making music in the shadow of conflict, and the band shares live performances recorded at home in Mali’s capital city of Bamako.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App! Download it today for your favorite mobile device.
