15. marts: Vi har fanget Samba Touré med band til en snak om koncerten – læs interviewet længere nede.

Malinesiske Samba Touré leverer en sprudlende omgang ørkenblues, der stilsikkert blander lokal songhai-kultur med vestlige genrer.

Samba Touré er kendt for at cruise rundt i sin bil i Malis hovedstad Bamako og lytte til et assorteret udvalg af CD’er med musik fra hele verden. Han henter inspiration i alt fra Serge Gainsbourg til funk og Bo Diddley, men er særlig berømt for at videreføre blues-arven fra legendariske Ali Farka Touré. I tråd med traditionel malinesisk sangskrivning kommenterer Touré i sine tekster på det aktuelle samfund og præsenterer moralske fortællinger om familielivets betydning, dovenskab og forurening.

Hvor albummet “Albala” (2013) præsenterede et dystert billede af Mali i lyset af konflikten i den nordlige del af landet, var der mere håb for fremtiden at spore på pladen “Gandadiko” (2014). Dog ikke uden at spændingerne stadig lurede i baggrunden i mange af sangene. “Gandadiko” fik en fremragende modtagelse af anmelderne. Musikmagasinet fRoots gav eksempelvis topkarakter og kaldte pladen “Spektakulært opfindsom, afmålt og stærk”. Anmelderen hos det britiske dagblad The Guardian var også begejstret og skrev: “The music is mature and confident, with Touré’s quietly commanding voice matched against insistent bass riffs and guitar work (…) Impressive.” Samba Tourés seneste album, “Wande”, udkom sidste år.

Interview med Samba Touré med band
What can the audience expect from the show?
“We present traditional sounds of Toumbouctou but electrified and modernised with some western influences. The audience will see and hear the traditional instruments that we play – ‘ngoni, tamani, calabash. The experience is very engaging for the audience.”

What merch do you bring?
“Samba’s discography (vinyl + CD). ‘Ngoni and tamani – music instruments played on stage and hand made by the band member Djimé Sissoko. Traditional necklaces, earrings. The band will join at the merchandise desk after the show and sign records and talk to people.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“It’s a mix from the four albums, every night the set can change a little, according to the mood, the place, the feeling. At every concert we play one song from Ali Farka Touré – you surely know Samba’s background and connection to Ali Farka Touré.”

How have your most recent concerts been?
“The tour has been very succesful – we have already performed in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and after Denmark the band will head to Finland, Sweden and Lithuania). Last night we played at a pretty packed Alice, we were in great shape and the audience reacted from the very first sound of the tamani calling the people – that is how the concert starts, then Samba come on stage and starts his typical bluesy desert guitar sound.”
