The next Khruangbin single with Malian musician Vieux Farka Touré is here! In case you missed it, the Texas-based trio have paired up with Touré for a new collaborative album titled Ali. Today’s release, “Tongo Barra,” follows the first, lead single “Savanne.”
Similarly to the last single, “Tongo Barra” features a beautiful mesh of music from two totally different parts of the world.
Ali will be released via Dead Ocean on September 23, later this year. It’s a tribute to Vieux’s father, Ali, whose iconic vocals can be heard as the band reworks the instrumentals.
You can stream the new song from Khruangbin and Vieux Farka Touré below. Enjoy!
