Watch the latest video from Malian songwriter and guitarist Sidi Touré. Ay Hora (My Dance) is the opening track on the new album Alafia released 16 Sep 2013 on Thrill Jockey. Ay Hora is an uplifting and infectious dance track that is an unbeatable album opener. It’s no surprise that he is regularly compared to the legendary Ali Farka Touré, a sound that is rooted in Songhaï folk music.
With the widespread praise already garnered on Sidi Touré for his last two releases Koïma and his revelatory début Sahel Folk I’d push that praise further with this album…he deserves living legend status!
Sidi Toure will also be appearing at Womex next month and playing headline gigs in London and Utrecht with more dates to follow.
