Malian guitar virtuoso Vieux Farka Touré and Israeli superstar Idan Raichel join together to create masterworks of collaboration and improvisation. Their album, The Tel Aviv Session, was hailed as “the best album this year” (Pop Matters), reached the number one spot on the iTunes World Music sales charts, and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard World Music Chart. Their recording sessions—acoustic, spontaneous, entirely improvised, and stunningly beautiful—can only be described as magic. The group’s live concerts reflect the same natural spontaneity and free-form creativity, allowing audiences to experience firsthand the invention of sublime and transcendent music that crosses boundaries of country, culture, and tradition.
