The album is dedicated to Vieux Farka Touré’s father, Ali — a guitarist who merged traditional Malian musical styles with blues.
The group worked to recreate some of Ali’s pieces for the album, putting their own twist on his compositions.
Ali follows Khruangbin’s Texas Moon EP with Leon Bridges, in February.
