On this week’s Global Notes with Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia: the Ali Farka Touré Band. Some of the band’s members are the original musicians who played in the legendary Malian guitarist’s band. Touré passed away in 2006.
The band was in town earlier this month for a concert at the Old Town School of Folk Music.
We bring you excerpts from last week’s Radio M, including an in-studio performance and conversation with the founder of Timbuktu’s Festival in the Desert.
