The band have over 1 Billion cumulative streams across digital platforms.

Songhoy Blues

Songhoy Blues appearing at this event

A group of talented musicians from Mali, Africa. Raised on a diet of Hip-Hop, R&B and Hendrix, all those old ‘world music’ prejudices have no place here. Songhoy Blues are four talented, hungry, sharp and outward-looking young men from a part of the world that has had more than its share of pain and conflict in recent years.
