Press Quotes

"Toure is a technical marvel, and his delicately plucked clusters and blindingly fast runs gather influences from African hymns to folk songs."

Rolling Stone Top 100 Guitarist

"Ali Farka Touré was one of the true giants of African music, the greatest ambassador of desert blues, and a consummate performer and composer"
