Songhoy Blues - Music In Exile album FLAC

Songhoy Blues is a desert blues music group from Timbuktu, Mali. The band was formed in Bamako after they were forced to leave their homes during the civil conflict and the imposition of Sharia law. The band released their debut album, Music in Exile via Transgressive Records on February 23rd 2015, while Julian Casablancas' Cult Records partnered with Atlantic Records to release the album in North America in March 2015.

Mali’s Songhoy Blues fled from their homes in northern Mali, joined the Africa Express and now release an impressive debut album. Songhoy Blues are a young and exuberant Malian band who already have a remarkable history behind them. They fled from their homes in the north when radical Islamists overran the region, and on reaching the safety of Bamako, decided to form a band – at which point their fortunes dramatically changed

In common with many of their compatriots, the members of Songhoy Blues found the imposition of Sharia law which followed the arrival of Islamist fundamentalist fighters in their hometowns in Northern Mali in 2012, required them to make some fairly urgent and radical decisions about their lives and their music. The collaboration with Nick has continued through the recording of their debut album, Music In Exile, which has been released this week. That first song, ‘Soubour’, is an angular, bluesy groove which gets the album off to a flying start, its polyrhythmic percussion and fiery lead guitar burning with an intensity that echoes its lyric, which translates as a request to refugees from the conflict in the north of Mali to have patience. As Garba explains, Without patience, nothing is possible.
