A more joyous, upbeat side of Mali blues singer and guitarist Sidi Toure
– and maybe his best yet for Thrill Jockey! Backed by a tight group featuring Boubou Diallo on backing vocals, Djadke Traore on guitar, Ousmane Dagnon on n'goni, Baba Traore on bass and Mamadou Kone on drums, Sidi
soars out front with his trademark spindly electric guitar and soaring vocals on songs that are as lively as any we've heard. Part of that might be due to this being his most electric guitar based album we've heard, but the songs themselves have a bigger, loftier sound. Includes "Hendjero", "Moulaye", "BK", "Djirbi Mardkie", "Toubalbero", "Tchirey", "Handaraizo", "Heyyeya", "Sitiali Boubou", "Kaoula" and "Tarzidet".
