This February, Mali gems Songhoy Blues release their debut full-length, ‘Music in Exile’
The Gao-formed group paint a picture of both resistance and celebration. Filmed back home, it documents the ins and outs of a life where music is the main form of expression, one that’s previously been repressed. All smiles, Songhoy Blues’ new clip is a powerful means of sticking up for beliefs.
Songhoy Blues begin a UK tour, including a sold out show at London Oslo with Cosmo Sheldrake in support.
