Sidi Toure Set For European Tour In March 2014

Sidi Toure will be back in Europe for a tour this March, playing in the UK, France, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg (full tour dates below).

Three dates (Bury St Edmunds, Dortmund and Luxembourg) will be part of Sahara Soul with Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni ba!

Sidi Touré first emerged on the international scene in 2011, he was regularly compared to Ali Farka Touré, his countryman and predecessor. There was a similarity in means, sound and even surnames, and both musicians hail from the Songhaï region of Northern Mali. The signature blues-inflected guitar and plaintive vocal melisma of Songhaï folk music carries melodic and repertory characteristics that extend from Ibrahim Dicko - Touré's mentor - to Ali Fakra Touré's pioneering work. Over the course of two recordings - last year's critically-lauded Koïma and his revelatory debut Sahel Folk - and attention from Songlines, NPR, MOJO, Uncut, The Quietus, SPIN, The Sunday Times and Pitchfork, among others, Touré's musical identity has fully come into its own.

Feel free to share the tour dates your website, blog, twitter feed etc.

Please let me know if you would like to preview / review any of the live dates. Sidi Toure is also available for interviews and sessions.
