Boomkat Product Review:
"‘Alafia is the third international release from Malian songwriter and guitarist Sidi Touré. This follows last year’s critically-lauded ‘Koïma’ and 2011’s revelatory debut ‘Sahel Folk’. Backed by this band of young talented musicians, who have joined him on several tours, Sidi invited friends from the North to participate to this album - the singer Leïla Gobbi, the kolo player Berté Ibrahim, and the rising star guitarist (and Touré disciple) Baba Salah. Touré also opens his music to Malian traditions outside the Songhaï realm with the n’goni virtuoso Abdoulaye Koné aka Kandiafa and the legendary Fula flute player Cheick Diallo. Sidi Touré is a renowned figure in his home country of Mali, performing music since the 1970s. Through Thrill Jockey’s introduction of Touré to new audiences, he has achieved success and critical acclaim worldwide."
