Description

Hailed by fellow musicians and critics alike, Rachid Taha is one of world music’s foremost stars, who has worked with artists including Patti Smith, Mick Jones and Robert Plant. Influenced by Algerian, Arab and Western genres, he performs tracks from his new album.

'A feisty new African guitar hero... consistently excellent’ (The Times), Vieux Farka Toure bridges the gap between Western rock and his Saharan roots, creating the music of a contemporary Africa: sophisticated, modern but deeply connected to its heritage.

'A dazzling piece of work' (Observer, in praise of Vieux Farka Toure's new album Fondo).
