Sons of Mali; groundbreaking artists; refugees; virtuosos; survivors; rock stars. Unforgettable and undeniable, Songhoy Blues represent the future of African rock & roll and present here the release of their third album, Optimisme, out on Transgressive Records. This 11-song, multilingual album marks a real musical breakthrough. Musically harder, steeped in deep traditions of classic Malian music and desert blues and fused with an urgent and super-charged sound of now, the album was produced by Matt Sweeney of beloved indie rockers Chavez - who has worked with a host of celebrated artists including Johnny Cash, Run the Jewels, El-P, Cat Power and Will Oldham - and recorded and mixed by Daniel Schlett (The War on Drugs, Modest Mouse, Ghostface Killah) in Brooklyn, NY.
