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. That might (should) change soon though. Sidi Touré is set to release his new full-length Koïma on solid Chicago imprint Thrill Jockey this April. 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.

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
