Named after the large traditional drum used to gather people in the Malian region of Gao, ‘Toubalbero’ is a danceable, dynamic and joyous record.
this is the first album by the acclaimed Songhaï legend to be recorded with electric guitar and bass, and their addition results in some irresistible grooves. the album was recorded in Mali’s legendary Studio Bogolan, where Ali Farka Touré, Toumani Diabate and Björk have recorded. check this out if you’re a fan of ali farka toure (no relation), songhoy blues, or imarhan. “early days, but ‘toubalbero’ will take some beating as African album of the year” 8/10 – uncut.
