"Savane" - Ali Farka Toure

The D.N.A. of the blues - Martin Scorsese

Absolutely perfect. It's an enriched musical statement. A truly great piece of work - Ry Cooder

I know this is my best album ever. It has the most power and is the most different - Ali Farka Touré

Savane is the last solo album by the legendary Malian singer and guitarist Ali Farka Touré. Recorded in Bamako with his specially assembled down-home ngoni group, Savane is Ali's testament, a powerful reaffirmation of his umbilical link to his Malian musical roots. Already acclaimed as his finest album, 'Savane' is both one of the most traditional and seemingly the most blues-drenched of Ali's recordings. The record occupied Ali right into his last weeks, and he finally declared himself satisfied with it shortly before his death in March 2006.
