Ali Farka Touré - Savane (2019 Remaster) (2xLP)
'Savane' is the last solo album by the legendary Malian blues pioneer Ali Farka Touré. Recorded in Bamako with his specially assembled down-home ngoni group, 'Savane' is Ali's testament, a powerful reaffirmation of his umbilical link to his Malian musical roots. Acclaimed as his finest album, 'Savane' is both one of the most traditional and seemingly the most blues-drenched of Ali's recordings. The record occupied Ali right into his last weeks, and he finally declared himself satisfied with it shortly before his death in March 2006. It has now been remastered specially for this first time ever vinyl release on September 6th 2019.
