Mali

2014 first single from the Mali quartet Songhoy Blues' 2015 debut album, 'Music in Exile' produced by Nick Zinner & Marc-Antoine Moreau. The group members were forced to leave their homes due to threats from Islamic militants who outlawed music in Timbuktu. The group headed south to the Malian capital, Bamako. Former Blur frontman Damon Albarn came to Mali in a gesture of solidarity, and Songhoy Blues was one of the bands he took under his wing. The desert band's international career has taken off and they have played at several European festivals. They are featured on 'Maison des Jeunes', the album that Damon Albarn and his Africa Express team recorded in Bamako.
