Songhoy Blues On World Cafe

With Music In Exile, the forward-thinking desert-blues band raises awareness of war in its home country, Mali. Hear an interview and performance.
Songhoy Blues started when, displaced from their homes in the north of Mali, members Garba TourÃ, Oumar Tourà and Aliou Tourà fled Timbuktu in 2012 and traveled to Bamako, where they decided to form a band to play for fellow refugees. Songhoy Blues' instrumentation - two guitars, bass and drums —represents a younger person's take on more traditional desert-blues bands.
