Baba Salah

We are currently in the studio working on Baba Salah’s upcoming release. Read this great article from Vanity Fair written by former MTV Networks chairman and Viacom C.E.O. Tom Freston, about the land where the electric guitar helped power a democratic rebellion.

“The festival goes on for two more days. The highlights include a tribute to Ali Farka Touré, Mali’s biggest star ever, featuring an impressive list of artists, Oumou Sangare and Toumani Diabate among them. An electric-guitarist from Bamako, Baba Salah, who is called “the Jimi Hendrix of Africa,” blows the house down. The festival closes with a rousing set from the group Tinariwen.” – Tom Freston
