|Songhoy Blues Music in Exile Limited Vinyl LP
· Songhoy Blues announce details of their debut (Nick Zinner - Yeah Yeah Yeahs) produced album, ‘Music In Exile’, released on Transgressive Records.
· All those old ‘world music’ prejudices have no place here. Songhoy Blues are four talented, hungry, sharp and outward-looking young men from a part of the world that has had more than its share and pain and conflict in recent years but has given far more than its share of music and joy to the world in return over the past four decades. That place may seem strange, alien and ‘exotic’ to some but deep down, Songhoy Blues are a familiar proposition: four young men, guitar,
drums, bass and vocals, driving rhythms, big hearts and a story to tell.
· Support dates with Damon Albarn, Spoek Mathambo, Julian Casablancas and Tinariwen.
· For fans of Tinariwen, Fatoumata Diawara, Spoek Mathambo, Africa Express.
