Qwest TV: International Blues Day 2022

Celebrate International Blues Day and trace back this historical and artistic axis linking sub-Saharan Africa to the United States.

Let yourself be led through this journey starting with Bassekou Kouyaté, Malian master of the ngoni – a traditional West African lute – and guitar prodigy Samba Touré. A spirit then echoed in the Southern States, embodied by John Lee Hooker and his authentic tone and Cedric Burnside, ambassador of hill country blues and grandson of the immense R.L. Burnside.
