The Touré-Raichel Collective is set to perform on Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at Peter Norton Symphony Space in New York City.
This concert at Symphony Space kicks off the release of the much anticipated, second Touré-Raichel Collective album, The Paris Session. A chance encounter at an airport between Israeli star Idan Raichel and Malian guitar virtuoso Vieux Farka Touré led to an unplanned recording session that ultimately developed into their debut critically-acclaimed album, The Tel Aviv Session.
A creative partnership was born as the duo, joined by Israeli bassist Yossi Fine and Malian calabash player Souleymane Kane, improvised a masterful selection of songs. The group’s live concerts capture the same creativity and inspired collaboration, delivering music that transcends the boundaries of country, culture, and tradition.
