Daby Touré / Skip McDonald New Release Call My Name Out Now
Daby Touré, a rising West African star currently based in Paris, has released a new 6-track album, Call My Name, a collaboration with American bluesman Skip McDonald. The album is available digital-only in the U.S. and on CD in the U.K. on Real World Records. The album features songs by Touré and McDonald which highlight the interplay between McDonald’s weighty guitar grooves and resonant English vocals and Touré’s lighter, more freewheeling musicality and agile multilingual singing. Daby, a member of a musical dynasty forged on the banks of the Senegal River - and the artist behind Real World albums Diam and Stereo Spirit, is forever seeking fresh sounds and innovative ways of applying them. “All the music I picked up when I was young is still in me and that doesn’t change. But in my music I am still searching, and mixing, and trying new things. I am African but I am also European.”
Daby Touré's New CD, Stereo Spirit In Stores April 22
Daby Touré's new album, Stereo Spirit, will be released worldwide on Real World Records on April 22. Daby played all the instruments on the disc, which was recorded in three months and mixed with Bob Coke in Paris. With vocals in five languages, the BBC called the album "a glorious fusion" of African and European elements and "a testament to the power of music to transcend linguistic barriers." "My songs are about giving people an emotion, making them feel good, just for a few moments," Daby said. "What I'm trying to do is to give people the best moment possible whilst listening to this album, even if they don't understand what I am talking about because I'm not speaking a language they understand." Stereo Spirit, is the follow-up to Dabys 2004 debut, Diam, which earned him a BBC Best Newcomer award nomination. Touré will be touring throughout North America this summer ..see tour dates >>
