Featuring Vieux Farka Tourè, Lakha Khan, Nihal Khan, Madou Sidiki Diabatè, Barmer Boys (released September 2012 in India, April 2013 US/Benelux)

The Amarrass Desert Music Festival of 2011, recorded in the shadow of New Delhi’s ancient Siri Fort, captures both the quiet contemplation of Madou Sidiki Diabaté’s kora music, and the boisterous celebration of the Barmer Boys’ qawwali music. That all these styles come from the same sandy roots is clear in the final track, when Diabate, Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré and Rajasthani masters Lakha Khan, Dane Khan and the Barmer Boys take the stage together for one last jam
