Mali Music : ln 1987 for the first time since the Festival of Sofia in 1968, Touré travelled alone outside of Mali to play his first concert. Showing no signs of nerves or unfamiliarity with his surroundings and with absolute and supreme confidence in his music he played a masterful series of shows winning audiences everywhere.
