Cedric Watson and Sidi Toure

Wednesday, Apr 9 7:30p
Triple Door Seattle, WA

From Africa to Creole Louisiana and back again, the blues on an transcontinental journey within the francophone African diaspora. Together Cedric Watson & Sidi Touré find common ground in the blues while exploring distinct music traditions from far flung corners of the francophone African world.
