SONG OF THE DAY Ali Farka Touré ft. Taj Mahal – Roucky (Remastered)

World Circuit Records are known for producing some of the finest world music albums in the last two decades.

Specialising in music from Cuba and West Africa the label is best know for the Grammy winning Buena Vista Social Club album (the biggest selling world music album of all time which ultimately led to the phenomenal rise in popularity of Cuban music).  The Buena Vista series continues and thrives to this day and includes the solo albums from the Grammy winning Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, Rubén González, Guajiro Mirabal and the innovative albums from Cachaíto López and Angá Díaz.

For their latest release, World Circuit Records have remixed the legendary Malian blues guitarist and singer, Ali Farka Touré’s 1992 album, The Source.  The album, compiled from original master tapes, is now available on vinyl/digital and represents just some of Touré’s music that World Circuit have released over the years (following Talking Timbuktu – the superb album Touré recorded with Ry Cooder which brought the label international acclaim).   Roucky is a heady, atmospheric and smouldering piece of desert blues and its great to know that this smashing album has been remastered and reissued, grab your copy from here. 

Whilst you’re here enjoying the sublime sounds of Ali Farka Touré’s, I can highly recommend the music of his son, Vieux Farka Touré , check that out on my blog here.
