Songhoy Blues Booking Agency Profile

Book Songhoy Blues for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Songhoy Blues is a desert blues band from Bamako, Mali, that consists of members Garba Toure, Aliou Toure, Oumar Toure, and Nathanael Dembele. The group was formed in Timbuktu, but have since had to leave Timbuktu due to the civil conflict and imposition of Sharia law. Together, the members formed together in Bamako to try to recreate what they lost after being forced to leave their homes and want all of their fellow refugees to feel something when they play. Songhoy Blues began playing in Bamako where they grew a large amount of fans from where they were from. They were then noticed by the non-profit, Africa Express, which led to them recorded the single “Soubour” with guitarist Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Their single became successful and from there, Songhoy Blues went on to record their debut album, “Music in Exile,” which was released in North America and earned positive reviews from outlets such as NME, Metacritic, and The Guardian. Since then, Songhoy Blues have gone on to tour with Alabama Shakes, Julian Casablancas, and have performed at festivals such as Glastonbury Festival, Bonnaroo Festival, Austin City Limits, and more. They have also gone on to release their second album, “Resistance.”.

"How much does it cost to book Songhoy Blues for an event?" is a frequent question we get, but the final Songhoy Blues booking price is contingent on many variables and the booking fee we show is based on a range derived from our past experience with what will Songhoy Blues charge for an event. Also, their speaking fee might be different than the fee shown for the cost to perform or to just appear. Popularity, career stage, along with current demand will cause fluctuations in their speaking price too. The final booking price may be more than what is shown, but you should at least have a budget within that range for them to consider an appearance, performance or speaking engagement.
CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances! We cannot give out direct contact information of the Songhoy Blues agent or help distribute fan mail, personal messages, gifts, requests for free appearances, or donations of time. The Songhoy Blues manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Songhoy Blues for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Songhoy Blues agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Songhoy Blues, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Songhoy Blues booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Songhoy Blues, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
