Please Peter! Kendrick is their hero! Any chance of rescheduling their Thursday night gig?

From Blusfest email Tuesday

"Malian band Songhoy Blues just landed in the country last week and feedback from their first ever Australian show in Perth was "...put some extra pegs in the tent, these guys are going to blow the roof off Bluesfest" and "Can't tell you what an uplifting experience that was."

From Perth the band then traveled east for the Port Fairy Folk Festival attended by Bluesfest Festival Director Peter Noble who said of their performance:

"Songhoy Blues performed two rousing sets at the Port Fairy Folk Festival this weekend bringing the audience out of their chairs and onto their feet dancing to their infectious rhythms on both occasions. The band is loving their tour of Australia and can't wait to get to Bluesfest where they are saying they really want to give their new album to their favourite artist Kendrick Lamar. They so want to meet him. They also said their favourite guitarist is playing Bluesfest, Joe Bonamassa, and that they are disappointed that by the time he plays they will already be on their way to the US for shows there and they will miss out on hearing him. They are super nice people and will be one of the many artists touring Australia and playing Bluesfest for the first time who are sure to impress massively"

The Music also gave them an equally impressive review from their Golden Plains performance:

"There is always that band that no one knows too much about but blows the crowd away. This year that honour goes to Songhoy Blues. Hailing from Mali, Africa, the band have the crowd eating out of their hands with their blend of '70s rock, blues and reggae."

Make sure you don't miss the hottest world music band that EVERYONE is talking about!"
