The Touré-Raichel Collective - The Tel Aviv Session

Vieux Farka Touré (Mali) and Idan Raichel (Israel), virtuosic superstars from very different backgrounds, join together to create masterworks of collaboration and improvisation.

After a chance meeting in an airport in Europe, Idan and Vieux forged a deep friendship that led to an impromptu get together in a small studio in Tel Aviv in November 2010. The resulting recording session - acoustic, spontaneous, entirely improvised and stunningly beautiful - could only be described as magic, and The Touré-Raichel Collective was born.
