Ali Farka Touré – Savane (Live at Bozar)
#World Circuit Records – Publié 27.08.2019
Ali Farka Touré performs ‘Savane’ live at Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels in January 2005. The show, which at the time was his first European show for more than five years, was among the very last performances of Ali’s touring career. Ali is accompanied by ngoni masters Bassekou Kouyate and Mama Sissoko, both of whom feature on the studio album ‚Savane‘.
