Soubour by Songhoy Blues

“If you need a reason to allow refugees into the country - this is it! These guys are from Timbuktu and fled their homeland when radical Islamists invaded their homeland. All I know is they sound great - apart from the vocals they sound like they come from deep Texas - listen, enjoy, I defy you not to smile.......”
