New Sounds: Vieux Farka Touré & Julia Easterlin – A’Bashiye (It’s Alright)

Vieux Farka Touré & Julia Easterlin - A'Bashiye (It's Alright)

Definitely digging the vibe of this as Vieux Farka Touré and Julia Easterlin connect, creating uplifting rhythms for your mind, body and soul. If you like this, they have more invigoratingly sounds on their collaborative album titled “Touristes out now on Six Degrees Records. Our standout cut from the album “A B’ashiye (It’s Alright)” finds Vieux in his more accustomed electric mode and singing in Bambara. The song sports a lilting rhythm and neat horn arrangement into which the electric guitar solo fits seamlessly. Julia provides a wordless vocal backdrop and then sings the title phrase in a classic bit of call-and-response with Vieux. This track will be on repeat.

The Touristes LP is out now via Six Degrees Records.
