Video: Sidi Touré 'Ni See Ay Ga Done'


Sidi Touré is a Malian guitarist/songwriter that's been crafting songhaï blues since the early 80s. Throughout his career Touré's won the Mali National Bienale award for best singer twice but never quite gained the international praise garnered by compatriots Tinariwen and Bombino.

Watch the 8mm video for featured track "Ni See Ay Ga Done (It Is To You That I Sing)" and stream/download "Tondi Karaa (The White Stone)" over at TJ's soundcloud.
