Ali Farka Touré

Real Name: Ali Ibrahim Touré

Died: March 7, 2006, Bamako, Mali

Legendary Malian guitarist and best known exponent of Mali blues.  While in the 1970s when these albums were first released, he was likely only known locally, but in the 1990s, he'd be the winner of two Grammy awards for his Talking Timbuktu collaboration with Cooder and his 2005 release Heart Of The Moon with the kora player Toumani Diabaté

Mayor of his home town of Niafunké in Northern Mali on the edge of the Sahara, Touré also acted as a peacemaker in the Touareg rebellions of the mid 90s
