Sidi Touré's Sahara Blues for Two
Sidi Touré: Malian Musician at the Highline Ballroom
Not to be confused with his Malian counterpart Ali Farka Touré, singer-guitarist Sidi Touré is making his own musical mark via a variety of blues and African folk styles joined with the traditional Songhai vocals of Northern Mali. The title of his third album, 2013's Alafia
, means "peace," and it's both a heartfelt salute to his country and a musical commentary on its continuing strife. Touré returns to the U.S. after his first successful North American tour in 2011, which included performances at New York's Lincoln Center and the Chicago World Music Festival.

Considered one of the greatest concert films ever made -- it was directed by Martin Scorsese and starred The Band, after all -- The Last Waltz comes to life as a benefit performance at Highline Ballroom, featuring The Rev Tor Band and more than a dozen local musicians, who'll put their own signature stamps on songs from the original soundtrack. The movie captures The Band's final concert in 1978, at which they were joined by all-stars like Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Paul Butterfield for favorites like "The Weight," "Up On Cripple Creek," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."
