I saw them in concert a couple years ago, and it was an amazing show! From CIIS:

If you’re unfamiliar, Touré Raichel Collective are a cultural triumph featuring the guitar virtuoso, Vieux Farka Touré from Mali, and the Israeli pop star, Idan Raichel. Their music reflects the natural spontaneity, free-form creativity allowing audiences to experience firsthand the invention of sublime and transcendent music that crosses boundaries of country, culture and tradition.
