Daby Touré

Daby Touré is a child of many worlds. Touré spent his childhood in Mauritania, Western Africa, where he was an avid listener to the radio and was influenced by the Police, Stevie Wonder, and Michael Jackson. He taught himself the basics of guitar and from an early age felt instinctively that his destiny was to become a musician. A musical and linguistic polyglot, Touré creates an elegant sonic mixture that merges the linguistic inflections of the six languages he speaks. His music is a puzzle whose pieces, once assembled, form a comprehensive map of the world. It builds bridges between cultures, crosses borders, and gives life to a poetic language and a universal sound. "I was born in Africa," states Touré. "And all the traditional music I picked up when I was young is still in me and that doesn't change. But in my music I am still searching and mixing and trying things, and that's what I am doing now. I have travelled far from the 'traditional' or 'folkloric' music of my country."
