Ali Farka Toure – Savane

2019 Remaster

Often acclaimed as Ali Farka TourĂ©’s finest album, it has been remastered specially for this first time ever LP release.

“Savane” was Ali’s last album, released in 2006 just after his death.

Ali Farka Touré is well known as one of the most influential and talented guitarists that Africa has ever produced. His legacy and impact are hard to overstate. Ali’s sound merged his much-loved traditional Malian musical styles with distinct elements of the Blues, singing in local languages.
The result was the creation of a groundbreaking new genre, now well known as the “desert blues“, earning him 3 Grammy awards, widespread reverence and the nickname of the “African John Lee Hooker.”
