The joyful blues of Mali’s Sidi Touré

Critically acclaimed Malian musician, Sidi Touré, is a man with a mission. His most recent album Alafia translates to "peace" and deals with the political turmoil in his homeland. Sidi Touré played Sunday night at the Hideout but stuck around town for an encore performance here on the Morning Shift. (Flickr/Festival d'été de Québec)
