Lately all that I’ve been listening to is music from Mali…the works of Ali Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate, Tinariwen and Bombino are already a well-loved part of my music library. I was excited to learn that Ali Farka’s son Vieux Farka Toure is a great musician in his own right and I’ll be sharing the stage with him tomorrow as part of Pop Montreal.
I’ll be previewing songs from my upcoming LP which is available for presale in my store, and Brad Barr of the Barr Brother will join me onstage for Floodgates, and I’ll be covering a song by French psychedelic chanteuse Catherine Ribiero.
I’m also excited to see the Besnard Lakes performance this Friday, they’re planning something epic at the Rialto in Montreal.
