Overview

Overview Sidi Toure

One of Mali's great artists, guitarist/vocalist Sidi Touré, is a highly acclaimed practitioner of Songhaï Music with two Malian National Arts Awards for best singer. Touré led Gao’s regional orchestra, The Songhaï Stars, prior to going out on his own. In 2011, he released Sahel Folk, his debut album for Thrill Jockey Records, touring North America and Europe for the first time. For his fourth release, Toubalbero (a big traditional drum used to call and gather people in Gao), Touré has created a danceable, dynamic, and joyous album played with some of the most exciting new faces on the Mailian music scene. A revered leader who has his feet deep in the Northern Mali music tradition has created an album, despite the region’s significant political challenges, that brims with optimism. For this show, he will be bringing that electric band for a powerful, rocking, show.

Smoke Bellow:

Since the band’s formation in Baltimore in 2011, Smoke Bellow's output and approach has been touched by the spirit of that city’s kinetic arts scene and the relentless creativity of its far-reaching experimental music community. This immersion has led to a writing process drawing from vast influences such as 70s NY post punk, high minded pastoral krautrock, modern minimalist composition, as well as West African guitar groups. Over the years Smoke Bellow has been excited and honoured to share stages with Future Islands, Dan Deacon, Horse Lords, Wume, Wye Oak, Xylouris White, and Beach House.
