Vinyl LP pressing. Ali Farka TourÃ© is well known as one of the most influential and talented guitarists that Africa has ever produced. His legacy and impact are hard to overstate: Ali's sound merged his much-loved traditional Malian musical styles with distinct elements of the blues, resulting in the creation of a groundbreaking new genre, now well known as the 'desert blues', earning him 3 Grammy awards and widespread reverence. 'Voyageur' is the first release of previously unheard music since 2006's 'Savane', and features a collection of recordings captured at various points in Ali's illustrious career. The album, which features fellow Malian superstar Oumou SangarÃ© on 3 tracks, reaffirms Ali's status as a globally revered legend of African music.
