"Daby Toure, the charismatic Mauritanian singer songwriter, opened, and promptly stole, the show. Playing songs from his forth-coming Stereo Spirit album, he skated gracefully between beguiling ballads, tingling Senegalese dance grooves, high-stepping reggae and a kind of sprinting ska. Toure's voice has a sweet, high-register purity and his guitar-work is textured and pointed, rippling across gentle laments, hard chopping rhythms and body-slapping percussion. With his moving and uplifting set, Toure already has the makings of a world music star.'
