Songhoy Blues is a desert blues music group from Timbuktu, Mali. The band was formed in Bamako after they were forced to leave their homes during the civil conflict and the imposition of Sharia law. The band released their debut album, Music in Exile via Transgressive Records on February 23rd 2015, while Julian Casablancas' Cult Records partnered with Atlantic Records to release the album in North America in March 2015.
Today they unveil new single "IRGANDA", premiering on Best Fit. "IRGANDA" has a restless energy propelled by its infectious samba backbone. There is little respite elsewhere, though, with choral singing and guitars solos dancing atop the song's busy structure. It's the kind of song to soundtrack a late night holiday beach party or one that can play happily as you truck down a dusty highway.

Songhoy Blues – Irganda. The best new African band of the year, thus far, are these young graduates from Mali, who escaped to Bamako when Islamist extremists took over their home region. They mix traditional influences with the attack and intensity of a blues-rock guitar band, as shown by this song recorded at Celtic Connections. Next month sees the rerelease of the 1965 debut album by one of our finest and most influential guitarists and singer-songwriters.
