Cedric Watson and Sidi Toure
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. Using fiddle, guitar, frottoir (rub board), triangle and ngoni (the four-stringed African lute and ancestor of the banjo) this intercontinential quartet features two musicians from Africa and two from Louisiana.
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Sidi Touré is somewhat well known in his native Mali as much for his family's name and royal lineage as for his music. Touré, much like fellow countryman Ali Farka Touré (though he is from Gao, not Bamako), plays an original droning kind of songhai blues....
