Sweet Crude with Special Guest Sidi Touré (Louisiana/Mali)


About Sweet Crude: We are indigenous to South Louisiana. We would like to show the world that we can make progressive music that also embraces this region’s French-speaking tradition. We are joining a small but fervent group of young Louisianians engaged in keeping the language relevant via art. Also we would like to drink whiskey and dance all the time.


About Sidi Touré:

a singer/songwriter from Bamako, Mali. His music is a type of songhaï blues. He started his career in the Sonhaï Stars, a regional orchestra. In 1984 he won the award of best singer with a song of his own hand at a Mali National Bienale. He won the same prize again in 1986. In 1992 he collaborated with Kassemady Diabaté.
