Get On the Bus #diasporamusic ::IBE:: Sidi Toure/Cedric Watson

Well I was surprised last night in Los Angeles when Sidi Toure took the stage. I love surprises. I had no idea he was who was playin. Mali LEGEND Sidi Toure first with an amazing young ngoni player and then stepping back on stage in a collaboration with Grammy nominated Creole artist Cedric Watson;  becoming IBE  International Blues Express. Like Cedric said ‘get on the bus!’ Seriously i’d follow them anywhere. I’m on the bus.

“The melodic, percussive music of Mali’s ancient desert kingdoms form a natural affinity with the southern U.S. Delta Blues tradition that grew in part from its older cousin, and creates an extraordinary connection with the multi-stranded, driving Zydeco music of the Bayou.”~ will stewart
