RIP Ali Farka Touré

Very saddened today to hear of Ali Farka Touré's passing..

Apart from Fela, and King Sunny Ade, I'm no aficionado of African music, but I do know I've spent many many evenings of listening to this incredible African blues guitarist's music... most notably Ali Farka Touré, Talking Timbuktu, and The River.

If anyone hasn't heard these records I urge you to do so! His playing is so natural, fluid, and soulful... you can literally just buy one and put it on repeat and never get tired of it.
