THE LATE ALI FARKA TOURE AND TOUMANI DIABATE WILL RELEASE FINAL COLLABORATIVE EFFORT FEBRUARY 23, 2010

Toumani Diabete


World Circuit and Nonesuch Records are set to release Ali and Toumani, the second and last album pairing of the late Malian guitar virtuoso Ali Farka Toure and kora master Toumani Diabate, on February 23, 2010.

Recorded over three afternoons at London's Livingston Studios in 2005, with contributions from the late Orlando “Cachato" Lpez on bass, Ali and Toumani is the successor to the duo's Grammy-winning In The Heart Of The Moon. The new album was produced by Nick Gold and beautifully recorded by Jerry Boys, the same production team behind the earlier recording.

It is the last album recorded by both Farka Toure and Lopez.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
