One of the biggest highlights of Bastille Day in Boston is our live music concert. This year, we are thrilled to welcome:Sidi Touré, an award-winning singer/songwriter from Bamako, Mali and acclaimed practitioner of Songhaï Music/Blues. Before launching his solo career, Touré led Gao’s regional orchestra, The Songhaï Stars. In 2011, he released Sahel Folk, his debut album for Thrill Jockey, touring North America and Europe for the first time. For his fourth release, Toubalbero (a big traditional drum used to call and gather people in Gao), Touré has created a danceable, dynamic, and joyous album that includes some of the most exciting new faces on the Mailian music scene.
Listen to Sidi Touré
Lakou Mizik, a multigenerational collective of musicians from across Haiti blending Troubadou, Vodou, Rara, and Urban soul into a danceable bouyon of modern roots music. Formed in the aftermath of Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, the group’s elder legends and rising young talents united in a mission to honor the healing spirit of their collective culture and communicate a message of pride, strength, and hope to their countrymen and the world.
