Album Review: Optimisme by Songhoy Blues

Excellent, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Settling in Bamako, Mali's capital, the group gigged hard throughout the city, and began playing and recording in the U.K. within a few short years. The band reached wider exposure through international touring, appearances in the 2015 documentary They Will Have to Kill Us First, and the release of their Nick Zinner-produced debut album, Music in Exile.
