2019 (EP)

Internationally recognized as the most energic and eclectic electric pop band on the African continent today, Songhoy Blues joined forces in Bamako, the capital in southern Mali, after having to escape in 2012 from the civil war that ravaged the north of the country and proclaim  the sharia throughout the north of the African country. With a deep cultural tradition, this area of ​​the North African Sahel has a musical, transhumant and ancestral wealth, which is reflected in the band's music in an intrinsic and transcendent way. Their first album "Music In Exile", released in 2015, had a strong international impact both for its modern sound and for the protest content, which attracted the attention of both fans and the media worldwide. "Optimism" is their third album, produced by the american Fat Possum Records, as always, incorporating into his catalog those innovative and risky proposals directed to the most demanding and daring ears. It's desert blues.
