Songhoy Blues, live in Brighton

Live Review

Venue: Concorde 2, Brighton

Malian exiles bring their rebel blues to the south coast

On a windswept Brighton seafront, the Concorde 2 – based in a Victorian building that originally housed tea rooms in the 1800s – appears an incongruous venue for this Malian band, but their insistent circular riffs, infectious rhythms and the exuberant charm of singer Aliou Touré win over the capacity crowd from the start.
